A great spot for the night view of Jincheng.
Taiwenyan Temple in Yannan Academy is one of the five famous temples of Kinmen.
Taiwenyan Temple, along with Taiwushan Haiyin Temple, Tianpu Chenghuang Temple, Jincheng Nanmen Xianglian Temple, and Anqian Enzhugong Temple, are called the five famous temples of Kinmen.
After the renovation in 2012, Yannan Academy is a Hui-shaped structure. The front hall is the temple dedicated to black faced Qingshui Ancestor God while the back hall is dedicated to worshiping gods that are related to studying and exams such as Wenchang Dijun, Zhu Xi, and Kuixing. The rooms on the left and right, following the original layout, become exhibition and activity space, with calligraphy works on display and books available for visitors to read. Outside of the Academy, there is a giant scroll shaped art installation that is a popular social media check-in spot. Yannan Academy’s higher altitude location makes it a great spot for overlooking downtown Kinmen and Xiamen.
