About
a symbol of the heyday of tile-paved salt fields and fishing village The building that houses the National Scenic Area Administration in Beimen Village, Beimen Township, used to be the office of Beimen Salt Fields. In order to underscore Beimen’s unique culture, which is centered on the salt fields and fishing village, the square in front of the Administration building is paved with tiles used in the erstwhile salt fields. Besides office facilities, a salt field office built during the Japanese colonial period, and also known as the Beimen Police Substation, occupies a part of the premises of the Scenic Area Administration. The former police substation is a single-story Japanese-style wooden house with black-tile rooftop, horizontal wood-paneled walls and a unique tenon structure that is simply amazing!

The area
Neighborhood: Beimen Area I
Beimen is the coastal salty region. In the early days, the soil was infertile for agricultural development, so people in the region turned to aquaculture fishery, which has developed special scenery of its own. The area not only has the renowned Beimen Crystal Church and the one and only Jingzaijiao tile-paved salt pans, but also a breathtakingly beautiful sunset in Taiwan. With black-bellied terns hovering over the lagoon each October and November, this area has become the destination for bird-watching pilgrimages. Another holy place for religious pilgrimage in the vicinity is the Nankunshen Temple, which is considered Wangye (God of Pestilence) Headquarters Temple. As in Syuejia, famous for its abundance of milkfish, visitors can see the whole process of catching milkfish and experience the pilgrimage event, the Shang Baijiao Centipede Procession, organized by Cihji Temple. The procession can extend to a few kilometres, and is exclusively available here. The temple also houses very traditional Taiwanese artworks, Koji ceramics by Ye Wang. In Jiangjyun District, there are Mashagou Coast Recreation Area perfect for water activities and unique fan-shaped salt pans. The Jiangjyun Port and Cingshan Port are two essential fish wholesale markets. Every afternoon the fresh fish caught is brought back by fishing boats, and the special way of selling the fish has kept tourists lingering in the market.
