Description

Taiji Dong is located on a hill and reached by a cable car. The cave is a very old show cave, it is visited for centuries. At the entrance is an inscription with three chinese characters meaning Taj Chi Dong, which were written by Wu Tongchun, Ministry of Justice vice minister in Ming dynasty. However, there is evidence that it was also visited during Han and Tang dynasty, which would mean it is a show cave since around 200 AD. However, it was developed with trails and electric light in 1986.
