Nanzhi Mazu Temple, formerly known as Nanhe Temple, was founded in the Qing Qianlong Period and mainly worships the goddess Mazu. One of the three designated Mazu Temple heritage sites in Kaohsiung, it is also the center of old Nanzikeng Street (now Hsiangping, Dongning, Wuchang Villages).
The front of the temple is composed of a main entrance (sanctuary), with two doors leading to separate wings. Its interior features an intersecting structure of three beams and five decorative rafters at the building’s eaves, though the roof does not have the curved ridge normally seen in temple architecture. Inside the temple, various wooden and brick carvings, pottery, mosaic walls, paintings and other decorations can be seen, among which brick carving and pottery works are most notable due to their traditional charm.
