    Dubanan Memorial Hall

The Dubanan Memorial Hall is located on Slate Stone Alley in Wutai Township. It is dedicated to Dubanan, a revered sculptor known for his wooden sculptures. He also created many totems for the Lukai Tribe.

The Memorial Hall houses Dubanan’s artworks and is currently run by his son. It is also home to a special installation, the Bench of the Ancient, where the indigenous hang weapons for hunting. Only men can seat themselves on the bench. If a woman sits on the bench, she will violate the taboo and curse the weapons on it, so whoever uses them cannot hunt successfully.

The Memorial Hall is only open to tourists who have booked accommodation at the Dubanan B&B, and visitors should book a place before visiting the hall. Be mindful that a permit is required to enter Wutai Township. Larger vehicles such as trucks and tour buses are prohibited from entering the region.

Visitors are recommended to spend half an hour at the Memorial Hall. Make sure you call the hall to book a place in advance.

    [Duba Male Homestay] has two homestays: The building is the [Duba Male Artist Memorial Hall] of the Rukai artist Mr. Duba Nan. It not only displays the sculptures made by Mr. Duba Nan himself in his life, but also puts all his achievements in this life here. Walking into this memorial is like walking into a Rukai storybook. The other building is the [Sebalad Traditional Slate House] built with traditional construction methods. It is the last traditional slate house left by Mr. Duba Nan for his clan, and it is also the largest traditional slate house in Quanwutai Township. The pattern in which the Rukai people live can give a glimpse of the way the tribe lived in the past, which is worth seeing.

    Stayed here for one night, because we arrived late, after contacting the mountain entry control point, the owner, Mr. Du, took the initiative to wait for us by the main road of the village, and because we did not inform us that we were bringing a small dog with us, the owner's concern was increased. Trouble, but still welcome. When I got up early the next day and took pictures, I found that there are many carvings of the Rukai people in the homestay. Only then did I know that the family of the homestay owner is a famous artist. This is a homestay with local characteristics, which is very suitable for visitors like us who like mountain culture.

    The local supreme artist, many carved totems of the Wutai Rukai people are from his works. The "ancestral seat" outside the memorial hall is only for men to sit. Once a woman breaks the precept and sits down, the man will be unsuccessful in hunting.

    Wutai has beautiful scenery, and there are many Rukai characteristic slate buildings and sculpture installations in the village, which are very worth visiting. There is no meal after about 4 or 5 o'clock on the mountain. You have to prepare your own dinner or go up the mountain after you are full. The steamed buns with eggs, meat buns, and vegetable buns served in the breakfast shop are not as delicious and distinctive as the legendary ones, and it is inevitable to be disappointed. Only small non-woven towels are provided, and it is best to bring your own towels and toiletries. If you are worried that the plastic kettle is not safe, please bring your own drinking water and be prepared to prevent mosquitoes.
