Lianchihtan (Lotus Pond) Scenic Area

Travel tips

Dragon Tiger Tower Pagodas are undergoing renovations and are temporarily closed to the public.

Lianchihtan (Lotus Pond) Scenic Area is one of Kaohsiung's most traditional scenic areas, and was listed as one of the "Eight Sights of Fongshan" in the Qing Dynasty. There are pavilions by the beach, massive statues of gods and the "old city", surrounded by the city wall, living settlements such as historical sites, old houses, and military dependents’ villages and you can also sample Zuoying's rich, diverse food in the old streets and traditional markets. The Longhu Tower (Dragon Tiger Tower) is the most famous scenic spot in Lianchihtan. Constructed in 1976, the tower is seven stories tall, and the dragon and tiger doors are its entrance and exit. Its walls are decorated with koji pottery, which represent proselytizing stories, from a variety of artists. The tower's body is connected the Nine-Turn Bridge (Jiuqu Bridge)) and is set off by the lake. There is a rule when visiting the Longhu Tower: enter at the dragon's mouth and exit from the tiger's mouth; this will allow you to avoid bad fortune and enjoy good luck. You can enjoy a 360-degree view of Lianchihtan's scenery.
