4.1/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web
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. Put Eternal Spring Shrine and other Hualien attractions into our Hualien vacation generator, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The view from outside is great. If you have time, you should take the trek upstair, I know I will, next time.
  • Quite close to Hualien City, so if you don't want to drive for too long, this is a good place to set your destination to.
  • The shrine itself is pretty small, but the view of it from the side of the gorge is totally worth it. There's also a decent path that takes you up to two small towers and then on to a larger temple. We didn't go all the way to the other temple since we didn't want to miss our bus back to Hualien, but the walk to the two towers, about 1km mostly upstairs, was a really nice walk that got the blood flowing. Beautiful views from up top as well.
  • Awesome view..
  • I'm great for a rainy day
