Chiayi City

The Tropic of Cancer bisects the counties of Chiayi City and Hualien. There is a monument just outside Chiayi City that marks its latitude.

Some of the earliest pioneers from Zhangzhou in Fujian Province landed in Chiayi City and settled in the area near present Xingang. The inhabitants of the area remained loyal to the imperial government during the Lin Shuang-wen rebellion in 1786─a period of history recorded in artifacts preserved in Yimin Temple in Chiayi City.
