King Boat Festival of Jhenhu Temple in Sucuo, Anding District

The King Boat Festival in Sucuo is a folk religious rite that comes with its very own cultural character. Located on the bank of Zengwun River, Sucuo has a pivotal place, physically and symbolically, in promoting the culture of King Boat Festival. It has been recorded that since the reign of Emperor Tongjhih during Cing Dynasty, triennial King Boat festivals have always existed in the area. The tours of inspection of King Boat Festival organised by Jhenhu Temple have covered areas including Anding, Shanhua, Liuying, Sinhua, Yongkang, and Sinshih. Coupled with other temple fairs and troupe parades nationwide, these events will definitely become the spotlight of the Tainan Temple Festivals Year.
