    Maolin Entrance Park

As Typhoon Morakot devastated southern Taiwan with torrential rain on August 8, 2009, many of the scenic spots in Maolin National Scenic Area were ruined. The Administration’s old office was among the toppled buildings, and only three poles were left standing in mud.

Now rebuilt as the Maolin Entrance Park, the site is equipped with leisure facilities for visitors who want to stop by and rest. Here you can appreciate the third highest Deleriga Bridge in Taiwan from a far distance, which manifests the beauty of modern architecture. At night, visitors can find artistic sculptures shining under the lights in the dark mountain valley. This makes the park look differently at night and during the day.

The poles have been preserved as memorial monuments. They symbolize Maolin peoples’ perseverance despite all hardships. The sculptures inside Maolin Entrance Park are created by the local Ubake Studio and are presented here to suggest change and hope. Made with stone and steel, the sculptures encourage people to work hard for a better future. Note that the stone reliefs on the sculptures’ bases suggest Maolin’s indigenous history. The butterflies that seem to emerge from flowers allude to the rising of indigenous people from the earth and mountains. Each butterfly represents one neighborhood in Maolin; they are all flying towards a new life. Again, the sculptures are accentuated by lights in the night, so come and appreciate their unique nighttime charm!
