No.60, Guandi Temple, Madou Dist., Tainan City 721, Taiwan (R.O.C.)
Built on top of a so-called energy source, Madou Daitian Temple is huge in size and can be bizarre and disturbing for some. Outside, there is a 38-meter-high dragon’s sculpture going up above the ground, then under the ground, and finally into the pond. Visitors can walk into the dragon’s mouth through the tunnel, five meters in diameter, where they will have a glimpse of Taoist heaven and Taoist hell enacted by animatronics (like those little robots you see at Disneyland but way creepier!).
The Taoist hell has eighteen different levels. In each level, people are subject to different tortures such as getting their eyes gouged out by a demon, being stuffed in a dumpling steamer as well as having their heads chopped off by a tiger-shaped guillotine. After walking through and seeing all the eighteen levels of Taoist hell, you will surely behave for the rest of your life — some parents even take their children here to scare them into being good. If you are not as brave as you think you are, you’d better stay outside and enjoy the magnificent architecture instead.
