  • in charge of medicine and health.

  • prescription fortune sticks?

  • Prescription fortune sticks?

  • What's that?

  • Back in the days, ill people would go to

  • Baosheng Emperor's temple to seek medicine.

  • After lighting incense and stating their identity,

  • they would place the incense on top of their wrists

  • for a reading of the pulse by the deity.

  • Next, they would go pick a fortune stick.

  • On the stick there will be a prescription.

  • By following the prescription and taking the medicine,

  • your illness would be cured.

  • Tainan's Grand Guan Yin Pavilion and Shin-ji Temple

  • in the North District still practice this tradition.

  • does it really work?

  • I also recommend you to check out the Lane 321 Art Village.

  • Lane 321 Art Village? What kind of place is that?

  • Lane 321 used to be the dormitories for military families

  • and college professors.

  • Although it has been desolate for a while,

  • it is abundant in cultural history.

  • With the arrival of many artistic groups,

  • the place has regained some of its hustle and bustle.

  • for hipsters to take a stroll and take pictures.

  • That's right,

  • it is indeed very suitable for taking pictures and walks.

  • is there anything else you can do in the North District?

  • and the Children's Science Museum.

  • You would never think that there could be

  • such a large park in the middle of the city.
