Dulan Site

Sunday: Open 24 hours a day



In the northwest of Dulan Village, there is a mild marine terrace where well-preserved stone coffins and stone walls are found, now classified a third grade historical site. During the Japanese ruling (1895-1945), a rectangle stony coffin was excavated here. Follow-up investigations later by Academia Sinica led to discovery of giant stone piles. The site and the objects date back to 3,000 years ago and are believed to be a part of Kirin Culture. Now considered a protected cultural heritage, the site is divided into stony coffin area and stony wall area. Footways and explanatory signs are available. It is believed that more historical sites are nearby and await excavation here.

    Traveler rating:3 2016-08

    It's a nice walk (very agressive mosquitos take with you repellent) with a nice view, but the stones are not so interesting:not together few and not big.

    Interesting historical site

    Traveler rating:4 2016-02

    Although there is not much to see, this is interesting from a historical viewpoint. It is fascinating if one is interested in old gravesites. This is on the way to the Moonlight Inn, which means you can walk or drive to it on your way up or down from the Inn.

    The Highlight Is The Walk

    The site itself (a little difficult to find, but the locals kept pointing me in the right direction) is somewhat anticlimactic. Some 'old stones' tucked away in a small wooded area. The descriptions were somewhat lax in my opinion. There are some great views over Dulan and the Pacific Ocean from several points en-route to the site.

    Great megalithic archaeological site.

    Traveler rating:4 2014-08

    Very nice scenery and an interesting archaeological site. The walk up from the main north/south road in Dulan (1km) is very pleasant = park somewhere near the 711 and take the first road to the left (heading inland) north of the 711. I have to agree that the signage needs work - the interpretation in English is very limited. Dulan is a nice little town with a number of expat residents which is worth staying in if you have the time.

    Lack of descriptions

    There isn't any detailed descriptions at the attraction. It is actually a great site with archeology evidence. However, the site were not well arranged.
