What travellers are saying
- I visited the towers this weekend and they were both closed. Not exactly sure why so I was bummed that I could not collect my good luck by entering the dragon and exiting the tiger.
From afar the dragon and tiger were quite impressive and well maintained.
Lots of lotus pads in the lake surrounded the towers. It would look very nice when the flowers bloom.
I guess I will have to come back on a future visit.Written 25 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We went to this area in the evening to walk around the pond and check out the temples and pagodas. Got some nice pictures of the structures on the water and checked out the market between attractions. Market can get busy and it is at times difficult to walk around the market and near the pond. There were quite a few birds in the lotus plants and on the banks to see as well. Bathrooms near the pagodas and there were some mosquitos out.Written 28 January 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Unlike the Dragon and Tiger Temple, this one was open. I entered through the dragon’s mouth and followed it all the way to the tail. The entire length of the dragon was filled with ceramic reliefs and at the center a small altar was setup.
Once outside the dragon you could cross over the lake where there was small pagoda at the end.
Alternatively there were two other pagodas nearby.
The setting was not as nice or as maintained as the other the other dragon but still ok to visit while walking around. You can combine this visit with the Chi Ming Tang Tame across the street.Written 25 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I always come here too if I went to Kaohsiung. Why? Because they have Sbux, zara, and h&m (a great place for wasting time)💕💕 They also have Pandora and such.
But they don't have berskha nor pull&bear hehe but it's okay for me because it near Ruifeng night market. So you just need to walk for 10mins and voila~Written 1 June 2018
- The temple stands out in the area as it was so large, painted a bright red and elevated above the street level. It was reachable after climbing up 30 steps. There were multiple levels to this temple complex but I was only able to visit the main floor.
The altars itself were at least two stories tall. The central one was full of deities both big and small.
Good for a quick stop while visiting Lotus Lake.Written 25 September 2022
- Nice shopping mall with eateries, but still prefer Taipei's Shinkong (multiple blocks that are connected together).
However, it is considered as a nice decent mallWritten 30 May 2018
- My super sassy aunt brought me to one of Kaohsiung’s gems and I enjoyed every bit of it. The food, the clothes, shoes, household items, etc. Majority was affordable as it is a market. My aunt told me merchants switch almost everytime so better buy the item than fancies you rather than have seconds thoughts.
I most especially loved the food. Definitely Taiwanese!Written 6 April 2018
- This was one of my favorite temples to visit while walking along Lotus Lake.
Unlike other temples it was built to showcase Xuantian himself. He towered over the lake and was reachable via a bridge.
There was a largish car park here and as I walked towards the temple I passed under a massive gate and listened to karaoke singers. Strange location for karaoke but it must work.
The bridge itself was lined with many different fierce looking statues, mounted and ready to ride. It was a good spot to take pictures from the center of the lake. There were two, two story pagodas on each side and the one on the left contained a number of children rides. I guess there needed to be an incentive to bring the kids out this far.
Inside the temple was a little dark with low ceilings. Carvings and paintings covered the walls and ceilings.Written 25 September 2022
- This was my first temple visited during the stop by Lotus Pond.
It was quite a large temple at the end of the Pond but it was very quiet. Some workers were setting up a stage in the front for some event later in the evening.
There was no admission to go in but I had to check my temperature and get hand sanitizer.
Unlike Tainan’s temple this one did not have as much to see inside. There were a couple rooms with information about the rituals. Altars were decorated but no one worshipping. Near the front there was a small store serving drinks and this is where I saw the most people.
I noticed the red paint was faded in a number of areas so a refresh may be needed in the near future.
Overall this temple was a little hike away from all the temples along the lake so if you’re tired no need to wander all the way here.Written 30 September 2022
- The stadium has an interesting design with the Impressive roof acting like a solar energy power station.
Originally built for the World games it still looks in very good condition.Written 4 December 2019
- Nice place opposite tiger Dragon pagoda recommend to visit . You will find old style of Chinese architect.Written 6 September 2017
- When we visited the Spring and Autumn pavilion, there is a pathway leading to a small pavilion with temple-like roof on the lake. This is the Wuliting where you can sit and enjoy the lake views and breeze. This is also a good photo spot.Written 20 October 2020
- We accidentally came across this bridge when we left the Lotus Lake. As we were trying to cross the mega intersection, we realised that it was almost impossible to cross safely so we looked for an alternative and we managed to find this bridge. While crossing the bridge, we managed to catch the sunset and it was an excellent spot to watch the sunset.
Take a stroll across this bridge in the evening and enjoy the sunset with your loved ones when you are in Kaohsiung.Written 4 December 2017
- Shopping malls are generally designed to get you lost and keep you in there, and although this one's design is fairly straight-forward, the floor guides are what make things difficult. Going up the escalator, the signs say 'ladies fashion', 'ladies accessories', 'ladies underwear', etc., but those floors actually contain Muji, Uniqlo and H&M, for example. Aside from that, it's a nice, big, clean mall, and the food court has a good variety of cuisines and prices. Also close to the subway and biking distance to Lotus Pond.Written 8 February 2021
- Because there were many temples around Lotus Lake, I didn’t pay much attention to this temple. What I remember is that the picture of blue dragon in the main building is beautiful.Written 13 May 2019
