TAINAN CITY, Taiwan
(TraNews) –Yanshui in Tainan has a characteristic building called Octagonal Building. The name of this building came from the shape of the rooftop.

The Octagonal Building is located in downtown Yanshui Township. The building was built in 187 by a rich sugar businessman in local region. During Qing Dynasty, the businessman opened countless stores in the township and the stores were opened behind the Octagonal Building.

For over hundreds of years, the building has suffered from many kinds of damages. The whole building was built by maters from Fujian. There wasn’t a design plan for the building but only professional maters’ innovative ideas. You can explore more about Chinese architecture culture by visiting Octagonal Building. Until now, there are still a lot of people taking pilgrim tour to the area and visit Octagonal Building. It becomes the most important trademark of the township.
