    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.

    The artist Duoba male memorial hall, Duoba male is a national treasure artist of Wutai tribe, and many sculpture totems in Wutai are his works. Here, the collection and exhibition of Duoba's works and the operation of the homestay are currently managed by his son.

    I stayed here for one night. Because I arrived late and passed the contact with the mountain control station, Mr. Du also took the initiative to wait for us on the main road of the village. Also, because we did not inform us that we had a small dog, we increased the owner’s Trouble, but still welcome. Taking pictures early the next morning, I found that many of the Rukai carvings were kept in the B&B, only to know that the family of the owner is a famous artist. This is a very local hotel, which is very suitable for our visitors who like mountain people.

    [Duba Male Homestay] has two homestays: One is the Duka male artist memorial hall of the Rukai artist Duobaan, which not only displays the sculptures that Mr. Duba’s life has created by his own life, but also puts all the achievements in his life here. Walking into this memorial is like walking into the story book of the Rukai. The other is a traditional slate house made in the traditional way. It is the last traditional slate house left by Mr. Duba for the tribes. 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 tribes lived in the past. It is worth seeing.

    Wutai has beautiful scenery, and there are many Rukai characteristic slab buildings and sculpture installations in the village, which is well worth visiting. There are no meals after about 4 or 5 o'clock on the mountain, so prepare your own dinner, or go to the mountain after eating. Breakfast buns with eggs, meat buns, and vegetable buns are not as good as the legendary ones, but they are also unique and disappointing. Only non-woven towels are provided. It is best to bring your own towels and toiletries. If you are worried about the safety of the plastic kettle, please bring your own water and prepare for mosquito prevention.

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