This Fujian style shrine dedicated to Koxinga was originally built by the locals in 1663, rebuilt in 1758 and enlarged in 1874. The building helds nowadays a museum (Tainan Folk Cultural Hall) that displays things related to the concerned ancestors, pre-historic preserves and Tainan local history related materials.
The building is sorrounded by a beautiful garden that helds a monument dedicated to this pirate that expelled from the island the Dutch during the Ming Dinasty becoming a local hero.
