    Liugui Turtle King Rock

The Great Tortoise Rock is a mountain rock that reminds people of a great tortoise asserting its dominance like a king. It sits on the bank of the Laonong River and is surrounded by Chinese pistache sprawling around.

Folklore has it that Liugui is the namesake of the six large rocks scattered in the Laonong River under the Liugui Bridge; the rocks looked like tortoises swimming in the river from afar, thus the name Liugui, meaning six tortoises in English. The biggest rock was then referred to as the Great Tortoise Rock by the locals, who set up a shrine worshipping the rock. Local people brought offerings like Bok choy and carrots every day to the Great Tortoise Rock, praying to the Great Tortoise for protection from floods. The Great Tortoise withstood Typhoon Morakot and continues to stand on the side of a detour along the riverbank, safeguarding residents in Liugui.

Visitors are recommended to stick around for 15 minutes, showing respect to the Great Tortoise and enjoying the scenery alongside the Laonong River.

The signs are not obvious enough, and the people are getting thinner!

Liugui is located near the embankment of the river. The overall lack of maintenance, so the rock is no longer visible, the commentary card is also very mottled. The location is a bit remote, but you can see the full Liugui Bridge.

To enter Liugui, of course, you must first find the turtle king rock. There is a small temple of turtle king rock (it seems that you can exchange money with the sacrifice turtle king). There is nothing special about the environment. The public guides have been destroyed.

Now it looks a bit deserted, the commentary board and some cloth strips have all fallen off, but two big rocks can be seen vaguely looking like a turtle head. What makes me more difficult to understand is that the head of one of the tortoises and his nose are made of cement sculpture! ?
