One of only two main gates left from the days when Tainan was a walled city with 14 gates. It is hidden in the middle of a park, about 2 blocks from the Confucious Temple. It is pretty neglected by locals and tourists alike. People have been complaining about its inconsistent opening and closing time. However, if you have the time and are in the area, it is worth checking it out. There are a few canons and part of the original walls. In the park, you will also find many stelaes (tablets). These were used as public notices during the Qing period.

The Great South Gate is a fine remaining example of Tainan's old defenses. It's located about a fine minute walk south of the Confucius Temple. The double gate was completed in 1835. You can walk up the the upper level of the gate. Worth checking out and close to other attractions.
