Lianchihtan (Lotus Pond)
In 1686 (the 25th year ruled by Emperor Kangsi), the magistrate of Fengshan Yang Fang-Sheng planted lots of lotus (Lian) to embellish the scenery of the pool when building temples, so it was called ‘Lianchih Pool (Lotus Pond)’. Lotus Pond is a scenic spot in Zuoying District with well-known renown. The most two beautiful scenes of Lianchihtan appear in the morning and at nightfall. In the morning, bright views appear indistinctly in the mist. While staying in the dock at nightfall, it seems that the golden sky is endless. At night, broad water region brings plenty of moonlight.
