Zhuxi Temple (竹溪寺)

Traveler rating:3.5 2 Reviews 4.1




When talking about famous plaques in Tainan,the phrase "Understanding the World(了然世界)", displayed at Zhuxi Temple(竹溪寺), springs to mind. Built in 1661, Zhuxi Temple is Taiwan's earliest Buddhist temple, and along with Mituo Temple, Kaiyuan Temple and Fahua Temple (彌陀寺、開元寺、法華寺), it is one of Tainan's four old Buddhist temples. In 1693 Zhuxi College was attached to the temple. In the festival season it attracted lots of scholars and tourists to enjoy the scenery and read poetry. Although the landscape of that time can no longer be seen, the neighboring temple has a beautiful stream scenery that remains unchanged. Egrets can often be seen here foraging, and both banks of the stream a recovered by trees. It is next to the sports park, and attracts many people from the nearby area to go for walks.

    ちょっとしたひっそりとあるような寺院です。どちらかといえば現地の人々らがこの寺院を訪れてきております。 この寺院も築200年くらいはあろうかと思います。
