Eternal Spring Shrine

Aka Chang Chun Hsi or Shrine.

The Central East/West Cross Island Highway was built between 1956 - 60. Thousands of military personnel were involved in the constructions of the highway. Hundreds died, and this shrine was built to commemorate them.

It was position in a nicely strategic location above the spring water falls. Because the spring water is flowing all year round, the shrine was named after the falls.

We didn't climb up to visit the shrine, but only view it from below. The visit to the shrine isn't part of the itinerary.
