Eternal Spring Shrine, Xiulin

#4 of 31 in Things to do in Xiulin
Monument · Tourist Spot
Visit the beautiful and thought-provoking Eternal Spring Shrine, built in 1958 to commemorate 212 veterans who died during the construction of the Central Cross-Island Highway. Nestled into the side of a mountain, the Tang-dynasty-style shrine also sits just above a natural-spring waterfall. Unfortunately, due to its precarious location, the shrine has been destroyed and rebuilt twice because of landslides. Due to dangerous conditions, the traditional 20-minute route through the mountains to the shrine sometimes closes, as does the longer, more strenuous trail behind the shrine, which takes you up the "sky ladder." You’ll get fantastic views of the shrine and perfect photo opportunities from across the gorge.

  • The eternal spring shrine looks pretty far up with a waterfall. Very picturesque. There is a pulley to go up and a fairly long walk. We had no time so we didn't go up.  more »
