The shrine was renamed “New Taipei City (Taipei County) Martyr’s Shrine” after the retrocession of Taiwan. The shrine was remodeled in 1968 in Chinese-palace-style architecture to commemorate the brave martyrs who sacrificed their lives in the Anti-Japanese War.Visitors may now find troops of pine trees standing in front of Danshui Martyr’s Shrine. The beautiful sceneries of pine trees are considered one of the eight significant sceneries of Danshui. You may enjoy a great view of Mt. Guanyin while being surrounded by giant pine trees.
