First to Review

Gorgeous, old, and complex, the Grand Matzu Temple is a lively place with a constant flow of people coming and going, as well as regular temple festivals. This temple is dedicated to Matzu or Matsu, the goddess of the sea, and one of the most important deities in Taiwan. At the back of the temple, you will find shamans/healers dressed in white performing all kinds of rituals requested by the faithful. Located down a quiet small lane from the God of War Temple, and a stone's throw away from Chihkan Tower, the Grand Matzu Temple is the largest temple in the centre of Tainan.
