1. Description of Our Community
Nantun Old Street, also known as Plow Street, is the first pioneering area in Taichung City Taiwan. Because of the historic attractions, many tourists visited here. Located in the Old Street, the 300-year-old Wanhe Temple, is the oldest temple in the City, Wanhe means harmony and peace. Because many immigrants of different clans had bloody conflicts when settling in the area. However, they found that the only way for them to live here safely was to cooperate with each other. Thereby they set up the temple, and decorated the temple with Chinese sacred beasts symbolizing peace, many of which once appeared in the Hollywood movie ' Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

In the Hollywood movie ' Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings', there are many mythical beasts that appeared in 'The Classic of Mountains and Seas', such as unicorns and phoenixes. They have actually appeared in the carvings in the Wanhe Temple. Therefore, we hope that through the website more people could visit here and see these sacred beasts.
