In fact, it was a weekend and there were many street stalls along the street. You could see a lot of interesting things that are sold. Not sure about weekdays though.

Towards the end of Fuzhong Street, I saw this shop selling skewed food; they put a selection of food on a skewed and customers will choose what they like and dipped it into hot soup and when it’s cook, they can choose to dip it in variety of gravies. In Malaysia, it is called lok lok. What’s it call in Taiwan? Any guess?

Taiwan – Tainan; 2 Days Trip on History (7)

Hi!! Thanks for staying with me.

Still at the Tainan Confucius Temple ground which on Nanmen Rd; next to the  Old Tainan Martial Art Academy.

Beautiful old buildings inside the compound and also good for morning or evening walk. Lots of locals and tourist can be seen around these times.

These are some of the architecture in the temple ground.

Street entertainers performing in the temple ground on  a weekend. Not a bad crowd.

After a short tour or walk, I headed out and headed to Fuzhong Street. What’s there you may ask?

Well for a start… at the entrance, you will be welcome by a beautiful stone arch; Pan Gao Stone Arch. Built in 1794 and once served as the entrance to the temple. It is now the entrance to Fuzhong Street, a European-style pedestrian street where you can find street stalls along the pedestrian street.

While walking along the Fuzhong Street, I diverted to one of the small alleys and saw this wishing tree which is in front of a small  temple.
