Yanping Old Street

Yanping Street, alias Taiwan Street or Shih Pan (Stone Plates) Street, is located to the east of Anping Fort. It was the first street established by the Dutch 300 years ago, following the urban rule of Taiwan set up by the Qing government. The street was about 2m to 3m wide, allowing pedestrians and bicycles to pass through. However, it was not wide enough for cars to go in. In some ways, it was built for “people only.” In 1994, taking suggestions from local residents, Tainan City Government widened the street. When the construction work was about to proceed, people concerned about history strongly suggested that being the first street in Taiwan, it should be preserved. They blocked the street to hinder the construction, which was suspended then. However, local residence lost their patience, and they strongly requested the city government to proceed as planned. To uphold the rights of local residents, Yanping Street was torn down. But Jhongsing Street and Siaojhong Street, which were parallel to Yanping Street were preserved, allowing us to see their past glories.

Official God of War Temple

The God of War Temple is one of the oldest and most unique temples in the country. There’s debate about when it was actually built, but by most accounts it was built in 1665 during the early days of the Zheng era. The exposed wall on Yongfu Street is a distinct feature. It is called a horseback wall because its shape mimics a rider on horseback. It supports five different styles of roofs, including the decorative swallow-tail style. All of this conforms to the style of “Southern Min” temples in Fujian Province during the Ming Dynasty. Unlike most temples in Tainan, the layout of this temple is not symmetrical. While most temples have a main hall and then smaller shrines flanking it on either side, the temple compound for the God of War Temple extends a bit to the rear and greatly to the left of the main hall with only the street to the right of it.

From here, Confucianism was gradually disseminated island wide. Now, more than 300 years old, the beautiful ancient architecture, which used to play a key role in education and national rites, has been transformed into a venue for cultural activities, as well as a famous tourist destination. It preserves the ancient Chinese style and the unique style of Taiwan and symbolizes the imperishable spirits of Confucianism for love and humanity. Every building in this temple has profound historic meanings.
