Puji Temple(普濟殿)

Traveler rating:4.5 27 Reviews

Sunday:06:00 – 21:00





It is said that Tainan is shaped like a phoenix, which is why it was nicknamed phoenix city. As Puji Temple(普濟殿) is located at the center of the fengshui bagua (eight divinatory trigrams) net, to prevent the phoenix that brought the city prosperity from flying away, Puji Temple and the bagua net shaped streets around it were built. Puji Temple has become well-known in the last few years, the reason being its creative painted lanterns, introduced for the first time at Chinese New Year in 2014. Thousands of painted lanterns are neatly hung in the temple square and even extend onto Kuohua Street, giving a pleasant surprise to passing visitors and locals. The warm light emitted by the lanterns by night lets visitors feel the warmth of family reunions at Chinese New Year, winning much praise.

    City of Temples

    Traveler rating:5 2017-01

    This is a city of temples.   Taiwan is a small island, yet you will never get bored living on it. There are fireworks every week, especially in Tainan! We are celebrating birthday of Godssssssss almost every week. Taoism is the major religion here, unlike Buddhism, there are over thousands of gods in heaven. And similar to Greek mythology, the relations between Taiwan-gods are so complicated that you think you are watching “House of cards”. Imagine each god lives in 1 temple and believers play firework for each birthday. Multiple by thousand. Then imagine the gods are leaving their temples for other gods’ parties… Yes we have the busiest temple festival rundown, even busier than Taiwan international airport we afraid!   The Lantern Festival shown in picture takes place at Pu-ji Temple, celebrating its 350 yrs old. All the lanterns are beautifully painted by local tainanese, from children to artists. This year there are also Stunning Traditional Paper-cuts hidden in nearby lanes. It's worth searching every single corner, both day and night. You will find it romantic, warm and full of blessings.

    Traveler rating:5 2019-12

    文化古蹟,讓人心靈沉澱的地方 非常歡迎大家有機會可以去走走 如果想避開人潮,平日會合適些, 另外有燈會的其間人也會比較多, 可能就無法好好享受古城的寧靜
