Great South Gate
- Lane 34, Nanmen Rd
Lonely Planet review for Great South Gate
The garrison commander in you will love the martial feel of this old city gate, the only one in Tainan that still has much of its defensive wall intact. The inner grounds feature several cannons and a section of the old wall that is marvellously overgrown with thick roots. As with the Confucius Temple, the trees here are an attraction in themselves.
At the far end of the park look for a collection of handsome stelae that commemorate centuries of battles, bridge buildings, official promotions and anything else thought worthy of a large slab of engraved rock.
