Introduce

Built in 1715, Yanshui Martial Temple(鹽水武廟) enshrines Guan Sheng Di Jun. Yanshui Beehive Fireworks is a wild carnival that attracts many domestic and international tourists on Lantern Festival every year. The streets are full of people the day before Festival, on the day they are packed, and the township is full of excitement. The origin of Yanshui Beehive Fireworks was the procession by Guan Sheng Di Jun to eliminate disease by sending off the plague gods and it has become Taiwan’s most important Lantern Festival activity. After the god palanquin is carried from Martial Temple, everywhere it goes is lively and loud, thousands of fireworks flying through the air creating a stunning scene and satisfying the many thrill-seekers from Taiwan and overseas who attend. The noise and excitement continue all through the night. Yanshui Beehive Fireworks is a festival that should be experienced at least once in life.
