A giant Buddha sits atop Mt. Bagua in the Tri-Mountain National Scenic Area in central Taiwan. Originally named Mt. Wangluo, the mountain served as a strategic garrison during the Qing Dynasty. For this reason, it was also called Dingjunshan, meaning "Garrison Mountain." In the 18th century, its name was changed to Mt. Bagua because its shape resembled the famous Eight Trigrams (Bagua) of the ancient Book of Changes. Mt. Bagua, located on the eastern outskirts of Changhua City, has a panoramic view of the city from its peak, at an elevation of 100 meters. It is well known for its black 70 meters-high statue of Buddha.
