In the early years on Taiwan’s southwest coast, the groundwater inhabitants used to drink contained arsenic, and blackfoot disease was widespread. Many people suffered from physical, mental and spiritual torments. During this period of time, the establishment of the Christian Church on Beimen Island gave the sick spiritual support. The church worked hard, alongside Dr. Wang King-ho, to care for the physical and mental wellbeing of their patients.
The building behind the church is known as the “Little White House of Beimen”, and it also bears witness to this important period of history. The building’s elegant white exterior has recently made it a popular tourist attraction.
The nearby Yonglong Canal was the main route for salt transportation during the Japanese occupation period, and was a prosperous ferry point in the early years. Now, it is the economic artery by which fishers make their livings. You can stand on the bridge and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the buildings reflected in the water, and bask in some of the glory of Beimen’s bygone days.
