After visiting the oldest Temple in Taiwan, we head a bit further south towards Koxianga’s Shrine. There were two ladies with fancy photography crews taking photographs on the beautiful old bridge. We had a picnic by the pond and then wandered around the shrine (which sort of looked like the Korean style of Temple to me).
The shrine has been re purposed many times, including being dedicated to the founder of Taiwan, who was once a pirate!!! You can also so a lot of artifacts here at the museum. Entrance to the park and shrine is free.
After exploring Kozianga’s Shrine, we walked a short distance to see the Old South Gate. This gate looked like it must have originally been an old Dutch fortification, turned Chinese after the colonial times, but I am unsure of the specifics. You can certainly see both Dutch and Chinese architectural inspirations.
