Story of Yingge Stone

Yingge (literally “parrot” in Chinese) received its name because of a rock resembling a parrot in the Zhenbei Mountain Range. Yingge Stone is also known as Parrot Stone. It is located behind Zhongzhen Road and Chenggong Road in Yingge Township. When Koxinga’s troops advanced southward, they were attacked by a giant bird in Yingge. The troops bombarded the bird in fury. The bird fell on the ground and became the now Yingge Stone. Legend has it that fossils and treasures left behind by Japanese soldiers were found in the Yingge Stone Cave.
