The Shining South

In the 2024 Taiwan Lantern Festival, the Chengnan Lantern Zone is centered around the temples of Tainan, connecting the lights of the temples and the heritage of the city. 

In earlier times, the temple courtyard (廟埕) was an important gathering spot for residents to connect, socialize, exchange information and for children to play games. In modern times, whether hosting religious celebrations or gathering of vendors, the temple courtyard continues to be a vibrant space accommodating various community activities. The theme of this lantern festival is "The Shining South." During the festival, people will navigate through the streets and alleys, participating in the celebrations held in the temple courtyard and enjoying the brilliant scenery created by the interweaving lights!
