Former Tainan Weather Observatory

The Former Tainan Weather Observatory (Chinese: ; pinyin: Yuán Táinán Cèhòu Su?) is a former weather station in West Central District, Tainan, Taiwan.[1]


The weather station was built in 1897 during the Japanese rule of Taiwan. For a very long time, the building had been remained unused.[2] The Tainan City Government designated it a municipal historic site in 1998, and it became a national historic site in 2003. It later opened as a museum, and was closed for six months to repair damage from the 2016 Southern Taiwan earthquake.[3]


The building has a round structure following three concentric circles with offices on the outside, tower access on the inside and a circular hallway running between them. The top of the tower contains the exterior instruments.


The building is accessible within walking distance south west of Tainan Station of Taiwan Railways.
