National University of Tainan Red Building(Former Tainan Teachers College Main Hall)(國立台南大學紅樓(原台南師範學校本館))

Traveler rating:4 13 Reviews 0




The most eye-catching building inside the gates of National University of Tainan is the main building of the former Tainan Teachers College, officially named Office of the Taiwan Governor General Tainan Teachers College at the time. Towards the end of World War II, the roof was almost totally destroyed by missles in an air raid and was only repaired in 1947. The building has a double-crucifix shape and was built mainly using red bricks, which is why it was known as the “red building.” There is an Okinawa Pine in front; it is said to have been planted by future Emperor Hirohito when he visited Tainan in 1923 as Crown Prince; together with the “red building,” it is a symbol of the university. June-July every year, the golden shower trees around the building bloom, their cascade of golden flowers and the red brick of the building complementing each other. This is the best season to visit.

    Attractive Campus

    Traveler rating:5 2017-10

    the campus is huge and the faculties are located in different areas. They have some historical buildings and old trees on the campus! If you feel bored, you can take a walk in the campus, you will find that it is not just a campus!

    Nicely laid out university with some nice green space and a couple of interesting sculptures. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit but if you are in the neighborhood - which is close to the train station, it would make a nice path through to other districts.

    오래된 대학

    Traveler rating:3 2019-03

    타이난 시내를 돌아다니다보면 만날 수 있는 국립타이난대학입니다. 물론 타이난에서는 '국립성공대학'을 더 위로 치는 것 같긴 하지만. 오래된 건물이 나름 있어서 가볼만할 듯.
