Zhonggan Temple(總趕宮)was built around 1704. As travel between Taiwan and China depended on ships then, the custom of praying to a protector god of shipping developed. Zhonggan Temple enshrines Ni Sheng Gong(倪聖公), known as Chief Ni. While alive, he lived on the coast and was familiar with navigation routes. As a god, he is in charge of protecting shipping in the Taijiang Inner Sea and is a god unique to Tainan. It is said that Chief Ni is the only god who knows how to sail a ship. After visiting this protector god of shipping, visitors can buy a cup of refreshing Shuang Quan Tea at the side or enjoy some tasty food and enjoy a glass of ice cold beer at one of the BBQ restaurants in front of the temple in the evening.
