Tai An Railroad Cultural Park

on May 20 in attractions

Tai An Railroad Cultural Park features vintage Japanese-style architecture. The station sits in a valley and–in order to connect rail lines from both directions at the same level—the station was constructed lower than the rail bed.

The station building was designed to provide a special view, with the entrance on the ground level, creating a unique two-level architecture. Parts of the platform roof are made from rails, on which an Office of the Governor-General symbol and a 1905 manufacturer’s date mark are visible. The current building was reconstructed after the original station was destroyed during the Dunzihjiao Earthquake in 1935.

Address: 52, Fuxing Rd., Houli District
