During the wartime, supply ships that docked at the beach without any cover were vulnerable to attacks. In order to avoid loss of personnel and supplies, the soldiers, with much difficulty, managed to carve a tunnel, leading directly from the sea to within the mountain. This way, supply ships could dock and reduce their time under enemy attack. Jiu Gong Tunnel, located at Kinmen's southeastern part, is a hard granite cliff. Keeping in mind the manuverability and convenience for the ships, many paths were carved. It spans 790 meters in length, and 15 kilometers at its widest. It's 11.5 meters tall, and is more than double the size of Zhaishan Tunnel. This tunnel was all made back then by soldiers constantly using explosives to blast a hole, before removing the individual pieces. Vivid wax statues of soldiers are displayed inside, iin addition to specialized tools used in carving the tunnel, and even traces of axes on the hard granite. All let you imagine the amount of blood and sweat it must have taken to create the tunnel. One of the auxiliary tunnels next to the main tunnel are home to a colony of bats, numbering around 200. When passing through here, listen carefully: aside from the sound of ocean waves on the outside, sometimes you can even hear the cries of bats!
