Lady Linshui Temple(開基臨水夫人媽廟)

Tuesday:08:00 – 19:30





Located behind Yanping Koxinga Temple, Lady Linshui Temple(臨水夫人廟) was built in 1736. It enshrines Lady Linshui, Chen Jing-gu. It is said that she was extremely clever and had psychic powers as a child. When a serious drought struck Fujian Province in China, despite being several months pregnant, Chen set up at altar and prayed for rain. While she successfully brought rain, during her efforts she disturbed her fetus, suffered a miscarriage and died: In her last words she swore: “I will be the midwifery goddess after death, helping women who suffer difficult labor”. Since then, Lady Linshui has protected the newborns and pregnant women of Tainan. Linshui Temple is Taiwan’s oldest temple where people pray for smooth childbirth, and is just like a kind old midwife.
