Wu Chi Old Street

Posted Date : 2024-05-03 9667


Wuchi District is a hot travel destination in coastal Taichung. The development of Wu Chi Old Street originated from Dingheng Street, the only street where architectures built in Qing dynasty can still be found whereas most houses built in the same period were destroyed in a big earthquake in 1936. Among most Baroque-style architectures on Wu Chi Old Street, Wuchi Police Station is the most iconic building. Speaking of the numerous temples in Wuchi, Zhen Wu Temple and Chao Yuan Temple are the most prestigious temples. Seeing the detailed interior decors of the temples, visitors can perhaps get a feel of the pious commitment of the predecessors who built to temples.
The hundred-year-old Wu Chi Old Street does not have noisy marketplaces or crowds of tourists. Rather, it appears solitary in the aftermath of prosperity. The old, slightly decayed houses on both sides of the road used to be home to thriving businesses. Visitors are advised to do some research on the history of Wu Chi Old Street so that your visit can be more enjoyable in a meaningful way. Lastly, your journey on Wu Chi Old Street must not end without tasting some douhua and savory cakes.
