Taiwan Tour - Day Two
Eternal Spring Shrine
The next stop was the Eternal Spring Shrine, which was built to commemorate the 226 men who lost their lives building the Central Cross-Island Highway over a span of three years and nine months (July 7, 1956 to May 9, 1960). The shrine was originally built at the end of 1957, but was badly damaged twice from landslides, and thus had to be rebuilt. The latest iteration was rebuilt in 1989.
Lunch was a lot more normal on day two.
