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.

Taiwan – Tainan; 2 Days Trip on History (6)

Hi!! Glad that you have stayed with me on my walk around the old Tainan city.

So where’s next?

While walking around, behind of the temples, I saw this Japanese house. Yup, you can go inside and see the architecture. Something new for me as I have never been or stayed in a typical Japanese house.

One of the old buildings; Land Bank of Taiwan, is a wholly state-owned bank of the Republic of China (ROC).
