Huli Shan Fort Short Facts and History
What's interesting inside?
It's a fortress they say, but it's also a garden and a museum to me. It's a museum of cannons and other stuff.
The fortress is also a place where you would find 'peace' although they usually relate the fortress with war on some site contents.
Again, take a close look around and you'll find out that the soldiers back in time enjoyed peace within the fortress itself even in times of war.
When you're there you'll see:
- ancient swords, armaments, uniforms
- exotic stones in display rooms
- ancient trees
- a cactus garden and fountains - well, of course, these are additional newly-built 'Eye Candies' for you and me.
