Around Anping Old Street
I went to Tainan during the tomb-sweeping festival holiday break and stayed with my language partner’s family. One day we went to Anping Old Street, and this is a nearby graveyard that I thought was interesting.

Tainan Confucius Temple
This is the entrance to a pavilion in the Tainan Confucius Temple, which used to serve as a school during the Japanese rule.
In the left photo is a statue of Confucius and some of the goods for sale in the Tainan Confucius Temple’s store. In the middle photo, there’s a red lantern hanging on the 3rd floor of a pagoda by the Tainan Confucius Temple. Within the Tainan Confucius Temple, there’s a wall of calligraphy that says “Filial Piety” or “Devotion to one’s parents and loyalty to friends” (photo on the right).
