Where is the old White Terror HQ in Ankeng?

Front page of today’s Taipei Times shows an old Garrison Command white terror HQ called the Ankeng Guesthouse. Presumably it’s in Ankeng. I live out there and have explored all the roads around, so I’m curious if anyone knows where it is, and could provide me with an address or a Google Maps pinpoint.


What a find; all the old buildings I’ve ever found had long-since been cleared out of just about everything.

The article claims martial law lasted until 1992, though. Strange.

It’s certainly strange that that could have survived eight years of DPP administration. Scary if true.

Makes you wonder what other interesting things are still out there to find.

Just abandoned…strange to leave the documents lying around with human organs (well I guess people wouldn’t be exactly queuing to take them home…but there are lots of old military camps in the same situation around Taiwan.

It’s the Ankang (literally peace and health, ironic isn’t it?) Guesthouse. And it’s in Xindian, not Ankeng.

Ankeng IS in Xindian :wink:

I checked the Liberty Times and you’re right it is Ankang (安康), not Ankeng (安坑). Still could be in Ankeng though, as Ankang Rd is the main road of Ankeng.

So anyone know where it is?

I’m not sure, and my knowledge of Chinese is very poor, but could this be it? [quote]台北縣新店市雙城路12號[/quote]
I saw the above address here:

and here:

Here are some more videos, apparently from news broadcasts (the first three were on the same page):

Come on! seriously,this whole thing reeks of a bad propaganda stunt, incriminating documents and human organs just left lying around, for 20 years? :roflmao: at the same time Chen is in jail and the DPP is fighting desperately for some kind of relevance.

Seriously folks a little critical thinking please!

I love the videos,the musical score is bad horror movie/thriller…all the edits are tight anxious shots, good movie, bad plot; no suspension of disbelief possible with this kind of contrived tripe.

Oh well

Fair enough it sounds pretty suspect, yet I wouldn’t be surprised in Taiwan…things just get abandoned, as I mentioned there are many abandoned houses/camps belonging to ex-military all over Taiwan, Xindian has a large amount.


That’s it! Thanks. I just got back from checking it out. Shuangchen Rd is in Ankeng, just a couple of minutes from where I live. There was a big closed gate, but just as I rode up they opened it. There were a bunch of people there and trucks carting stuff away (rubble, old aircons and the like).

Not really. It says “The Taiwan Garrison Command was a military state security agency during the Martial Law era from 1949 to 1992.”

Proper phrasing or punctuation could have made it clear that the 1949-1992 refers to the Taiwan Garrison Command which wasn’t disbanded until 1992.
