Yuanshan Water Shrine is located directly opposite MRT Jiantan Station and next to the Yangming District Business Office of Taipei Water Department. Following the cement steps, the Yuanshan Water Shrine can be seen next to a reservoir. The original stone lanterns, the stele marking the name of the shrine, the hand cleaning basin and a pair of Guardian Lion-Dogs guarding the shrine are preserved. The shrine was built during the Japanese Colonial Period; its layout is largely intact. It is conveniently located near MRT Jiantan Station. However, because this place is a well-kept secret, the Shrine has few visitors. There is also the Yuanshan Reservoir sitting on higher ground, which is an important water conservancy stage of the Grass Mountain Waterway System. Even though Yuanshan Water Shrine is only a street block away from the Shilin commercial district, it is a very quiet place filled with a primitive, simple, mysterious and yet comfortable ambience.
