    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.

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

    The architectural style of churches or Catholic churches located in indigenous tribes can always be combined with the characteristics of the tribes. Taking the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church as an example, the totems and shapes on the walls are really eye-catching. Perhaps the township government can consider raising some funds to officially plan this place as a tourist attraction, so that when the church has spare capacity, it can open the church to general tourists (or church members) based on the model of Alishan Fenchihu Catholic Church. Pilgrimage, rest, and photography allow everyone to have a full view of the special seats in the church, instead of just "leaning in the window and looking in" to get an incomplete and partial "inclined view." The patterns engraved on the walls of the square are truly impressive… ※ The photo shared was taken on March 15, 106 (Wednesday)

    A very distinctive Catholic church, the feature is the worship chairs in the church, but unfortunately the door was locked on the day of the visit, the reflection of the window glass and the blocking of the screen window made it impossible to take pictures to commemorate...

    It turns out that the whole building is based on the concept of Noah's Ark. There is also a giant with stacked stone slabs

    The chairs in the church are made of wood carved into human shapes, just like the terracotta warriors and horses from the mainland. It is very interesting to look to the right with all your eyes. There is also an angel made of stone slabs outside.
