Fang-Yuan Art Museum 
Fang-Yuan Art Museum
Fang-Yuan Art Museum used to be the old residence of Dr. Huang Cing-wu, the first Mayor of Jiangjyun Township. This building was then passed on to Mr. Lin Jhen-fong who had a passion for art and traditional aesthetics. The residence has been renamed Fang-Yuan Art Museum to provide this old building with new meaning and vitality. The Art Museum combines both Eastern and Western elements. The front facade appears western, while the rear is connected to a Sanheyuan with red-tiled rooftops. The front courtyard is surrounded by arched corridors with entwining plants. Landscaping, flowing streams, and red brick walls give this place a simple yet generous aesthetic. The Museum collection includes modern porcelain as well as a special gallery of items retained in the late mayor's study. These include valuable old photographs, desks, table lamps, poetry, coral stone sculptures, and other artifacts. The Museum also hosts various artworks and performances every now and then to provide and promote public art education.

Linpu Hall — Memorial Hall to General Shih Lang  
Linpu Hall — Memorial Hall to General Shih Lang
Mr. Shih Jhong-siang, former committee member of the Control Yuan, spent a great fortune and over 10 years of meticulous work (1989-1999) to construct Linpu Hall to commemorate his ancestor, General Shih Lang, to provide the descendants of the Shih Clan with a tangible heritage. Interior designs and building materials have been specifically selected. The walls of the entire building were constructed using Jhangpu green stones shipped from Jhejiang and Fujian. The walls of the entire building were constructed using Jhangpu green stones. Every slab of interconnecting rock that forms the corridor has been carved with the words Jinghai Hou Yi Shih (Marquis Shi who Maintains Peace on the Seas) that signify ownership and seal of the great General Shih Lang. These characters have been kept throughout the generations by the eldest grandson and they have now passed on to Mr. Shih Jhong-siang. Overall, Linpu Hall appears like an Anjyun Hat, with a shape reminiscent of the Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall. Despite being a modern building, the Hall contains a rich collection of design elements and artifacts worthy of our visitor's attention, including octagonal windows with internal symbols and pillars, amber, chicken blood stone, ceremonial jade axe belonging to general Shi Lang, and a wooden sculpture of a Great Dragon Seizing the Pearl carved from a single slab of wood.

     Three centuries old Tiger
Three centuries old Tiger's Claw
The three-centuries-old Tiger's Claw (Erythrina variegata) is situated at the Siheli Sihu Settlement in Jiangjyun District close to the district's 2nd Public Cemetery. The ancient Tiger's Claw tree requires three to four adults to wrap around the entirety of its trunk, which is not very obvious as it seems to be composed of several trunks fused together. Siheli Sihu Settlement of Jiangjyun District was once called Fanzai Cuo because it was occupied by the Pingpu people early on. Hence, this Tiger's Claw tree has been regarded as a holy being and carefully tended to by the local residents. Local residents have also expressed that this used to be a disturbed area. The local Yushenghe Temple thus designated the location of the Tiger's Claw tree as the east side of the five garrisons in order to suppress malevolent spirits in the region. People in the region have expressed that the tree is vulnerable to the Quadrastichus erythrinae parasitoid wasps, which have decimated the leaves of the trees and nearly killed the plant. Emergency treatment managed to save the tree from its death.

     Ouwang Wenheng Temple
Ouwang Wenheng Temple
Ouwang Wenheng Temple was first constructed in the 22nd Year of the Reign of Emperor Cianlong (CE 1757). After multiple rounds of repairs and restoration, the Wunheng Temple is now the biggest, oldest, and most majestic temple in Jiangjyun District. The Temple is dedicated to the worship of Saint Emperor Guan. Many residents would come here to pledge their faith and supplications. Since many people have left Ouwang and started new lives elsewhere, there are no fewer than 1000 branch temples and shrines dedicated to Saint Emperor Guan of the Ouwang Wunheng Temple throughout Taiwan.
A memorial hall dedicated to Lin Kun-gang, a hero and martyr who fought against the Japanese in 1895, is located on the second floor of the Wunheng Tower of the Ouwang Wunheng Temple. The memorial hall exhibits his manuscripts, wooden bed, artifacts, and his deeds in the war against the Japanese invasion. The third floor of the Wunheng Tower is the Cultural Museum on the worship of Saint Emperor Guan. Exhibits include divine pavilions, awe-inspiring portraits of Emperor Guan, and other artifacts, basking the cultural museum in an atmosphere of somber loyalty and honor.

   Jiaodaiwei Singan Temple

The Singan Temple at Jiaodaiwei is dedicated to the worship of Avalokiteśvara Bodhisattva, Marshal Yang, and Jioutian Syuannyu (the Mysterious Lady of the Nine Heavens). The Temple was probably originally a Kuwa (place for ancestral worship) of the Pingpu people. It still provides an honored seat for Alid and other ancestors of the tribesmen as well as worship bottles and boar skulls. The Singan Temple is the only Kuwa where people can offer respects to boar skulls in the salt fields. The altar to Alid includes 3 boar skulls housed respectively in glass cases covered in red clothes. The bottom of the altar accommodates a small trapezoid shrine that includes 2 bottles for Alid and a plate of areca nuts in between them. The fact that worship services are performed on the 5th of the Ninth Month of the Lunar Calendar shows that this site was probably a branch shrine of the Soulang Settlement of the Siraya People.

Cotton Tree Path
Cotton Tree Path

The cotton tree (Bombax ceiba), also known as the banjhih flower, panjhih flower, red cotton tree, or hero tree, is a large deciduous tree that thrives in tropical and semi-tropical climates. The tree flowers every February to March before producing leaves. Each flower has a total of 5 orange or orange-red petals, and usually emerges before the leaves in early spring. The flowers give way to oval-shaped fruits, which split open in May to reveal ovoid, egg-shaped seeds packed in white-colored cotton like material. The seeds are then dispersed by the wind. The cotton tree flowers during the cold season with blossoms that look like tiny street lamps. Walking along the cotton tree footpath basks everyone in the vibrant atmosphere of Spring.
