Nankunshen Daitian Temple(南鯤鯓代天府)

Thursday:07:30 – 21:00





In the memories of many Tainan residents, their impression of the 300 year old Nankunshen Daitian Temple(南鯤鯓代天府) is the bustling temple fair, where thousands of pilgrims and tourists burn incense offerings for the five Wang Ye Lords: Li, Chi, Wu, Chu, and Fan. The story of the five Wang Ye Lords building the temple with their children is well known among the people. in November 2012 a pioneering work was completed, to collect all the gold donated by pilgrims since the temple was built, altogether 100,800 taels of gold, and create the largest gold plaque in the world, worth approximately NTD 600 million. The unveiling was the temple's grandest occasion in its entire 300-year history. Every year, the temple holds the Ping An Salt Festival, a series of events from October to November, where people line up to receive salt bags as souvenirs, all with different patterns on them. After they have been given their salt bag, they take some salt from the salt pile in front of the temple to the incense burner, a small treasure believed to bring good fortune and drive away evil.
