Sun Moon Lake Ci'en Pagoda can be found at Nantou County's Yuchi Township. It's located 954 meters above sea level on Shabalan Mountain, also known as Erlong Mountain. The tower is 46 meters high, and it's a famous landmark at Sun Moon Lake. In 1969,  it was built by Chiang Kai-Shek in memory of his mother. All the construction materials were transported over the lake water and then sent up the mountain. The entire project was an arduous and difficult one. From Ci'en Pagoda's tallest point, Lalu Island (originally named Guanghua Island), Xuanzang Temple, and Ci'en Temple are located on the same axis. The topography is shaped just like a faucet extending into the water of the lake. Lalu Island is located at the point of water, and Xuanzang Temple is at the faucet. Ci'en Pagoda is the center of the faucet. The pagoda contains a huge bronze bell, and memorial tablet dedicated to Chiang's mother, Madam Wang, is situated at a palace-style villa in front. In addition, there's a two-story tall memorial hall located opposite of Cie'en Pagoda, with the first floor being the Chiang Kai-Shek lounge and the second floor containing a portrait of Madam Wang and simple furniture. In the basement are photos of the engineering process at Cie'en Pagoda, original plans, and amendments by Chiang. Plants growing in the surrounding environment include plums , cypresses, and many flowers. Visitors may rest anytime at the stone tables and chairs. Also of note is fireflies, which may be viewed around April and May of every year.
