featuring

The Eternal Spring Shrine





At the eastern end of the Gorge, a picture perfect little shrine made from marble, - the Eternal Spring Shrine" -, has been built in order to honour and remember those many workers on the Zhongbu Cross Island Highway, that lost their lives during blasting and cutting their way along the vertical marble walls, that forms the Taroko Gorge.
