Tainan possesses ancient culture, and was the stage for Taiwan first entering world history. As a result a strong concentration of monuments can be found here, and you can experience many of them for yourself just by riding a bicycle around the city. Normally, those visiting Tainan for its culture won't forget this place: the Eternal Golden Castle. It's a 1st class national historic site, and is Taiwan's first modern Western-styled fort. It's a big step towards modernization for Taiwan's coastal military. Eternal Golden Castle covers an area of more than 3 hectares, and its surrounded by moats on all four sides. A practice field is located in the center. A few preserved full-sized Western cannons still remain, as a reminder of the circumstances back then. Despite extensive rennovation, you can still see the traces of the past even though its outer appearance and building materials have changed. in 2015, during the closing ceremony of the Tainan Arts Festival, a stage was set up at Eternal Golden Castle, with "House of Flying Daggers" performing. Just imagine being an actor, and acting alongside the castle walls and doors. With the performance scenes stretching across 270 degrees, audiences are bought back 2000 years in time to experience the war between Chu and Han. It's really quite amazing!
