Tomb of King Ningjing

The Tomb of the King of Ningjing is the tomb of Jhu Shuguei, who was one of the descendants of the first emperor of the Ming Dynasty. About 300 years ago, Jhu Shuguei was invited by anti-Qing Dynasty forces to Taiwan as an officer to guard the island. He helped cultivate the Jhuhu, Dahu areas and built a pond, now known as the Yuemei Lake used for the irrigation of the neighboring farmlands. He refused to submit and so committed suicide when the Qing armies invaded Taiwan in 1683. During that time, the people built hundreds of fake tombs in order to prevent the Qing armies from discovering the real one which was rediscovered in 1937 and has gone through three renovations. It was listed as a grade III historic building in 1988. Huge banyan trees, believed to be Jhu’s favorite plant, can be seen at the tomb.
