The Geographic Center of Taiwan Monument is located at Nantou's Puli Township, Zhongshan Road, Section 1, No.427, and on top of Hutoushan. Its longitude east is 120.25975, while its latitude north is 23.583234. Sitting at 555 meters above sea level, it was established during the Japanese occupation period and was only moved to the top of Hutoushan during Minguo Year 41. It is a center for geography in Taiwan. The shape of the monument itself is quite special, with it being surrounded by two white arced walls. The middle of the monument is a 3 meter high enamel screen. Stainless steel pole columns are erected at the bottom, with the four characters "Shan Qing Shui Xiu" inscribed by past president Chiang Kai-Shek. At the top, there's two intersecting rings made out of stainless steel. Ancient pine trees stand on top of Hutoushan and overlook the Puli Basin, and it's a great place for viewing the beautiful sunrise and sunset. Several stray dogs can be found here, therefore it's reccomended that you come and visit during the daytime.
