Jinhua Temple(金華府)

Traveler rating:4 18 Reviews

Monday:08:00 – 17:00





Located on Shennong Street(神農街), Jinhua Temple(金華府) was built in 1830, it is said by a man named Hsu of one of the five clans of the Five Channels, and it is also the guardian temple of the Xu family. It enshrines Guan Sheng Di Jun and two wangye (Royal Lords), Ma and Li. Not many temples have “fu”(mansion/palace) in their name like this one. As Shennong Street was one of the streets of the Five Channels, it is quite narrow. Restricted by its street house form, Jinhua Temple is quite small. It has been rebuilt a few times but retains almost the same look. After dark, the temple door is closed and the yellow streets lights come on, complementing the red lanterns of the temple and creating a classical charm. The door nails that are in place of Door Gods shine beautifully on the red door under the lights, creating an enchanting vintage atmosphere.

    Day Market Temple ....

    Traveler rating:4 2018-12

    In the five canals neighborhood, we were looking for the Wind Temple (which I'm not sure we ever found) and instead stumbled upon the Jinhua Temple, which is the only temple so far that we have seen that is immersed in the hubbub of the day market, which was, as far as these things go, a fairly clean (smell and hygiene wise) food area. We found bananas there for a decent price. The temple itself is one of the smallest ones we've encountered and humble in its presentation. It's not part of the LP walking tour, but is listed on the Tainan city map of temple stops. Now ... if we could only find the wind temple?!?

    Small but interesting temple

    Traveler rating:4 2015-10

    This temple is relatively small but contains a number of interesting statues. When we visited there was no one else in the temple which was good for looking around the temple and taking photos without feeling you were intruding on the local worshippers.
