A shrine in the parkKoxinga was the man who defeated the Dutch in 17th century, conquering the Anping fort, and is highly appreciated in Taiwan's history. So no surprise to see his shrine in Tainan. There's a temple, a park and a statue of Koxinga. Nothing special but worth a look if it's on your way.
Educational and relaxingThis park and shrine are both beautiful and peaceful. Just off a main road so it is very easy to access, but once inside it feels like you are in the countryside. The park is beautifully laid out with ponds, pagodas and the shrine. The buildings themselves are beautifully painted, and inside you can read the history of Koxinga, which was very helpful in terms of understanding the local history of Tainan. It was also an excellent place for kids to experience living history as they explored the rooms.

Fantastic blue tile roofs and red painted doors throughout this siteI would consider this shrine a must-do experience when in Tainan. It offers a good overview on one of the country's most important leaders, Koxinga, and also boasts spectacular blue tiled roods, red-painted doors and an unusual mix of greens in the color palate of the buildings that I had not seen elsewhere in Taiwan. Beyond this, the beautiful gardens to the right of the Shrine are nice to stroll through.

Green and Historic OasisThis shrine to the "liberator" Koxinga is a green urban oasis. There is a small park with a pond and sprouting dragon, a temple, a museum, a gift shop, and a perimeter wall lined with historical objects. No price is right -- free -- and the learning opportunities limitless. Do enjoy.
Worth a lookHonoring Koxinga, the Chinese general who defeated the Dutch and expelled them from Taiwan forever. Nice park.
