Madou Datian Temple(麻豆代天府)

Monday:08:00 – 17:00





Madou Datian Temple (麻豆代天府) is dedicated to the Five Kings (Wufu qiansui), and was built over a period of 10 years by a collaboration of nationally famous artisans, starting in 1956. The scale of the building is grand, and it has the first three-dimensional door god sculpture in the country entirely carved out of camphor wood. Tourists who visit Madou District (麻豆區) will certainly see the enormous dragon running across the temple buildings, and there are also installations for tourists to look at such as the Heaven and Hell Crystal Palace (天堂地獄水晶宮).The models of people, gods and ghosts all have a rather classic style; the hell area is like an early Taiwanese version of a haunted house, and the nostalgic sound effects make it seem like a 1980s Taiwanese theme park. The latest installation, a 35-meter slide with acrylic boards provided by the temple, attracts tourists of all ages.
