    Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus can be found on Provincial Highway No. 24 in Wutai Township. Set up in Shenshan Tribe in 1959, it is also known as the Shenshan Catholic Church.

The church was built with slate stones and has several special features. One of them is the human-shaped bench carved by the local indigenous people. Human sculptures forming the bench all look to their right-hand side, or the direction from which sunrises, implying hope. Another special feature is a beehive inside the church, which symbolizes solidarity, characteristic of the local indigenous tribe, who work and live together in a tribe like bees in a beehive that protects them.

Visitors are recommended to spend half an hour here. Those who wish to visit the church should book a place at the local community development association. Also, please note that a permit is required to enter Wutai Township and that larger vehicles such as trucks and tour buses are prohibited from entering the region.

    It turns out that the whole building is the concept of Noah's Ark. And a giant stacked with slate

    This place is worth visiting. On the left side of the entrance, there is the largest and hardest stone. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures. The chairs in the place of worship are really special and careful. There are backpacks on the chairs. It is a sacred and solemn place. Ask if you can go inside and sit and take pictures, but remember to drag off your shoes!

    A very worthwhile church to visit. The Catholic Church of the Shenshan Tribe is very special. The wooden carved seats of the church are in the shape of the characters of the Rukai people, which is the style of the traditional costumes of the Rukai people, which is very distinctive. In the backpack is the Bible. The altar of the church is a clay pot design.

    The chairs in the church are made of wood-carved human figures, like the terracotta warriors and horses of the mainland. It is interesting to look all the way to the right, and there is an angel piled up of stone slabs outside.

    A very beautiful and meaningful place ~ The spirit of Christianity and Rukai culture are combined and passed on. It is recommended to find a local guide to understand the story and meaning of each place.
