Eternal Spring Shrine, Xiulin

3.7
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.

On the way to the walk, we enjoyed the tunnel like a cave, and we could see a beautiful lying shrine and a river in the place where we went out. I thought it was the most colorful and gorgeous sightseeing place in Taroko.
