Tourist Spot
Aletheia University is a private university in Tamsui, New Taipei City and Madou, Tainan in Taiwan. It was founded by George Leslie Mackay as Oxford College. It has close links to the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan, and is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in Taiwan.HistoryDr. George Leslie Mackay, a missionary from the Presbyterian Church in Canada), worked in evangelism, education, publishing and medicine after arriving in Tamsui in 1872. Soon after arriving Mackay chose a piece of land on a hilltop in the Pao-tai-pu area of Tamsui, planned the design of the main building and personally supervised its construction. When the building, funded in large part by contributions from the residents of Oxford County in Ontario, Canada, was completed in 1882, he named the school Oxford College as a gesture of thanks to its benefactors. The original Chinese name of the school meant “The Hall of Reason of the University.” The original curriculum included courses in theology,

  • 這一帶以前是外國傳教士駐留的地方,所以有很多偏西式風格的建築,但是又融合了山水庭院造景及紅瓦、女兒牆等中國傳統建築工法,算是很有特色的校園。 另外推薦附近的文化阿給,這次吃了才知道淡水渡船頭那家完全不能與之相比。文化阿給不僅個頭比較大,而且內容餡料也充實不少,吃過一次文化阿給再去吃渡船頭的應該會只有徒然的空虛感吧....  more »

  • 長老教會宣教師馬偕登陸淡水,選定現址興建校舍以作傳教、教育及醫療之用。1882年校舍建成後,他為感謝其家鄉Oxford County居民的捐助,遂將之命名為Oxford College,亦稱牛津學堂。
  • After you go through the door at the Red Mau is connected on the way to the right as a good stop. I've been photographing the landscape a lot better buy points
