n front of the Baoan Temple in Tongliang Village, there is an old Banyan dated over 300 years, it is the oldest and largest tree in Penghu, with a total of 95 aerial feet, circling a square for people to rest under its shadow in front of the temple; if you do not look closely, you can hardly tell that they are all from the same trunk. One legend has it that between 1662 – 1722, a merchant vessel passed the waters around Tongliang when it encountered a shipwreck, and the only thing that survived was a sapling floating on the sea; residents of Tongliang picked it up and planted it in front of the temple; judging by this legend, the Tongliang Great Banyan could possibly be over 300 hundred years old.
