Taiwu Mountain is also called God's Mountain. It's located in the center of Kinmen, and is the highest mountain of Kinmen. The mountain measures 252m in height and is made up of hard granite-gneiss bedrock. Interweaving tunnels have been dug inside the mountain, and these passages provide the best defense. They achieved wonders in the battle of August 23rd. At the same time, the mountain tunnels comprise(1) a notable(2) underground castle. Besides, "Hhuagangshi (Granite) Military Hospital" and "Cintian Hall" inside the mountain are also worth noting.
The way up to the mountain measures a total of 3.5 kilometers from "Yuchang Road Arch" by the cemetery(3) to "Wu Wang Zai Jyu" Inscribed Rock.(4) On the way up the mountain, visitors can get a nice view of Kinmen. There are many charming scenic spots along the road, such as the Place Where Koxinga Reviewed the Military and Played Chess , Wu Wang Zai Jyu Inscribed Rock, Haiin Temple, and so on.
The Place Where Koxinga Reviewed the Military and Played Chess recalls the time at the end of the Ming Dynasty when Jheng Cheng-Gong (Koxinga) watched his soldiers drilling(5) and played chess. It's a natural cave, which measures 13 meters in depth, 7 meter in width, and 4 meters in height. In the cave there was a broken old chessboard made of stone. This was later restored(6) by the Kinmen National Park Administration to its present appearance.
