The shrine itself was closed on the day I took the trail, due to the recent typhoon, but the trail itself was open and the bell tower and monastery were open to visit if you can face the climb. The views of the shrine are still spectacular from the trail and from the viewing platforms across the gorge, even if... More

It was quite dry when I visited, so not too much to see. I think it will look much better after rainy days.

Although part of the track to the temple is closed at present it is still worth a trip to see and get as close as you can. Also learn how amazing the building of the road through the gorge was

I visited the Eternal Spring Shrine whilst I was at Taroko Gorge. It has nice Asian Architecture on the side of mountainous hills. There are spots along the way that you can take some great photos.

This is a beautiful shrine set in the hillside of Taroko Park. It wasn't open the day we were there, but is beautiful to admire and is very photogenic.

The Eternal Spring Shrine embroiled with its Tang Dynasty architectural stands majestically on the cliff side, about 300m away from the main road. So prominent and peaceful that you won't miss it. Today the passage to this Shrine is closed for safety reasons.Torrential rainfall, land slides and typhoons make it unsafe to go up to this destination. Eight years ago... More

Pretty average. Better to have a guide to explain the history behind the place; otherwise it's just another typical tourist attraction.

This is a beautiful shrine with an almost magical stream coming beneath it. It's possible to almost reach the shrine (but not quite), through a tunnel and cave, where there's a smaller shrine. The place provides endless photo-ops and is a great stop before leaving the gorge. 30 minutes ought to do it.
