So there y0u go!enjoy!

Lotus Pond, named after the aquatic plants growing in it, is located in eastern Zuoying District.One of the more famous temples is the Confucius Temple to the west of the lake, the biggest of its kind on Taiwan.Architecturally similar to examples from the Song Dynasty, the temple features an arched bridge and an embossed bronze wall profiling Confucius.Other prominent landmarks around Lotus Lake are the Dragon Tiger Towers with their relief carvings illustrating twenty-four stories of filial piety, twelve men of virtue, and the thirty-six generals of the Emperor of Heaven.The ancient Zuoying North Gate is also nearby.As the first gate built with earth and stone in Kaohsiung, it is historically significant and worth visiting.
