There is a lot to see but you need to seek some of it out as there are various buildings and staircases, some of which at first glance don't appear to be leading anywhere.

We visited over 10 temples in Tainan and this was one of the most interesting. The temple was extremely popular with local worshippers and was packed when we visited in the early morning. There was also some kind of ceremony taking place outside the temple with about 10 to 20 people playing instruments singing and chainring.
