Nankunshen Daitian Temple

Nankunshen Daitian Temple is located in Tainan City, consisting of 2 temples, which worship Wufu Qiansui and Wanshan Ye respectively. Legend goes that Wanshan Ye was a shepherd boy of a Qing emperor. He practiced Buddhist principles in Kanglang Mountain and became a Buddha here. Wufu Qiansui came to Taiwan later also in the Qing Dynasty. As they both wanted to build a temple here, they had a fight over the land. Goddess of Mercy mediated between them and suggested they both build a temple here to help local people.

Nankunshen Daitian Temple is the largest and oldest Wangye Temple in Taiwan. There is Kunyuan, Huyuan, Haishan Pavilion and other facilities. Every year, on April 26 and 27 (lunar calendar), people gather here for the yearly exuberant festival.
