My favourite temple in Tainan, the God of War Temple is an average size temple located opposite Chihkan Tower. This temple is dedicated to the God of War, Guan Di. It is one of the oldest temples in Taiwan and was once a centre of official sacrificial rites. You can marvel at its splendid artwork and abide in its religious atmosphere, as there's a constant flow of faithfuls coming to pray. Like most temples, other gods are also worshiped here. The Goddess of Mercy, Guanyin, has her shrine at the back of the temple. However, the main draw for young people to this temple is the shrine of the Old Man on the Moon, Yuelau; the Chinese version of a cupid. Young people come to him to pray for love and romance. It is rumoured to be very effective.
