The year 1661 was an important year in the history of Taiwan. It was the year Koxinga landed in Taiwan and began his operations on the island. It is said that he first set foot on Taiwanese soil at Luermen (鹿耳門). To commemorate the deeds of Koxinga, Orthodox Luermen Matsu Temple(鹿耳門聖母廟) donated land and built Koxinga Memorial Park(鄭成功紀念公園). At the entrance to the park, you can see the majestic red archway and the heroic bronze statue of Koxinga. The Luermen Landing Monument also symbolizes the real beginnings of the making of modern Taiwan.
