    Liugui Dongxi Bridge

Liouguei Dongxi Bridge is an arch bridge made of red steel located on Provincial Road 27. This bridge opened in November 2005 and replaced the old bridge. Its construction was donated by the China Steel Corporation. There are two lanes on the bridge, making it 131 meters long and 7 meters wide. The name of Dongxi Bridge derived from the late President Chiang Ching-kuo. As he looked out at Bangfu Stream, he thought the scenery looked like Dongxi, an area near his hometown in China. During that period, the children’s home was called “Dakulin", which the president later renamed “Dongxi”, because he didn’t like the previous name. Now, the address of the children’s home is No. 1, Dongxi Villa, Liouguei Township.

Liouguei Children’s Home:

In 1955, Reverend Yang Xu came as a volunteer to Liouguei with his Atayal wife Lin Feng-Ying and opened the children’s home to give shelter to aborigine orphans, earning himself the name Father of Aborigine Orphans.  Everyone knows him as Granddad Yang. He has spent half of his life caring for aborigine children in this area. His famous mottos are “Make friends, bring up kids, and spread the gospel" and "Love never ends.”
