  • Dajia District is situated at the northwestern corner of Taichung City, between the Dajia River and Jiufangli River. It was originally settled by the Taokas people of the Pingpu Tribe. When the Han settlers first arrived in the area to cultivate land, the two groups shared the land in harmony. In 1731 (the 9th year of the Qing Yongzheng Emperor), officials in the Danshui Prefecture enslaved the indigenous Taiwanese to build staff dormitories, leading to the outbreak of the anti-Qing Dajia Xishelin Uprising. After the incident, large groups of Han Chinese poured into Dajia to cultivate the land. The efficacious power of Mazu at the Zhenlan Temple livened up the area, and various local businesses were established, bringing prosperity to the region. Upon arriving in Dajia, pay a visit to the Zhenlan Temple and explore the once glamorous Dajia Town. Visitors can learn the history of Dajia through Lin’s Chastity and Piety Memorial Arch, the Wenchang Shrine, the North Gate Fude Shrine, and the
    Jindingsan Pawnshop.
