Chihkan Tower

Formerly known as Fort Provintia, Chihkan Tower was built during the Dutch colonization of Taiwan. It is considered as one of the best preserved or reconstructed historical sites in Taiwan, making it one of Taiwan's Tier-One heritages.

This fort was then surrendered to Koxinga when he recovered Taiwan. On 1945, it was renamed Chihkan Tower which means "Red-topped Tower".

Standing next to Chihkan Tower is the Wenchang Temple. It is home to the Statue of the God of Literature where a lot of students pray.

Chihkan Tower is open everyday from 8:30 am - 9:00 pm. Ticket costs 50 NTD for adults and 25 NTD for children. It is located in 212 Minzu Road, City Centre, Tainan, Taiwan.
