Features

The Taikasei Revolt broke out in the 10th year of Yongzheng Emperor's reign in the Qing era (1732 CE). Under the leadership of Lin Wu-li, the Taokas people took up arms against the Qing authorities in a revolt that lasted a year. The revolt caused major casualties for Han Chinese people and plains indigenous peoples alike, and resulted in the Qing government stationing more soldiers in plains indigenous settlements to strengthen control over the indigenous population. Tamsui Sub-Prefect Chang Hung-chang (dates of birth and death unknown) was patrolling villages with civilian soldiers when they were ambushed by Lin Wu-li's forces near Asock tribe. Inhabitants from a nearby Cantonese village rushed to their aid, and 18 Cantonese immigrants perished in the ensuing battle. Their bodies were gathered by fellow villagers and buried outside the city. Their grave, called ""Grave of the 18 Braves"", is what would later become Huaizhong Shrine. After the Taikasei Revolt was quelled, Hao Yu-lin, the Viceroy of Min-Zhe, wrote a report of the incident to the imperial government. Yongzheng Emperor responded by ordering local officials to build a shrine to honor the fallen fighters, which would become Changhua's Huaizhong Shrine. The shrine was destroyed in battles and rebuilt multiple times in the subsequent years. The final renovation before the start of the Japanese colonial period was done in the 7th year of Guangxu Emperor's reign in the Qing era (1881 CE) and formed the temple we see today.
