One of the older and more popular temple in Tainan, Tiantan Temple is dedicated Jade Emperor, the god that rules over the mortal realm. At the back of the temple you can approach the fortune tellers/healers, dressed in white, to help you read your fortune or to perform healing rituals, that include chanting, whipping, going into trance. When you walk towards the temple, you might be called by the sellers from the shops at the entrance of the temple, selling joss sticks, paper money, etc.

Tiantan Temple is one of Tainan's most important. The "Temple of Heaven" is mostly dedicated to the Jade Emperor and was completed in 1854. Centrally located, about a fifteen minute walk southeast of Datianhou Temple.
