History of Tianjhong
Tianjhong Township, of which original name was
Tianjhongyang (Center of Farmland) due to that it was surrounded by paddy
fields in the past, is located in southern Changhua County.
The old Sha-lun Street (the original downtown
area of Tianjhong) was very busy, but two serious fires caused extensive damage
to this area. After that, Mr. Shao-nian Chen led his family members to move to
the new block (the present downtown of Tianjhong) and rebuild their homeland. The
new area is named after “Fire Market”, which is located between Yuan-ji Road
and Nan-bei Street in Tianjhong. Later, more and more immigrants from Mainland
China and local residents developed this area, improved the environment, and
raised up the quality of life during the Japanese colonial period, which made our
hometown, Tianjhong, a big progress and maintained the original hospitality as
