Ancient Grave at Daoye
The ancient grave measures 15 meters long and 12 meters wide. The scale is only slightly smaller than the grave of Wang De-lu at Chiayi County, a famous general who lived during the reign of Emperor Jiacing. The grave includes porcelain water pipes, crescent- shaped pond, a front courtyard, a table composed of tiles, pieces of the granite headstone, and a coffin made using sanhetu (a mixture of different materials for construction purposes.) The tomb is symmetrical when expanding outwards, albeit in different forms (one side being curved, the other side being straight.) It was believed that the east side would be Houtu (the sacred aspect of Tudigong, the Earth God.) This grave is mostly composed using ceramic tiles. No signs of the stone grave have been found.
