Attractions along Syakaro Historic Trail
The Ma’an Police Post, established in 1922, is located on the small saddle on the western edge of Yanglaoshan (Mount Yoro), about 1,460 meters above sea level, on a foundation of more than 400 square meters. Based on legend, the name of the first Atayal who came here to reclaim the land was Bawan, and so, the traditional Atayal name of this place was named after him. Later in the Japanese Occupation period, the Governor-General in Taiwan transliterated it as Ma’an.
In the early post-war period, the National Government took over and turned it into the Ma’an Police Station, which was later abandoned in 1959. Today, the remains of rammed earthen houses and walls of the police post can still be seen on site.
