Taiwo is on the border of Taoyuan and Taipei county - you can reach Sanxia township in Taipei county from Taiwo. In the early development of nothern Taiwan, people followed Tamsui river upstream to Daxi, and Sanxia was a midway river port in Dahan river. The early pioneers pushed into the “wild lands” of the mountains from Daxi and Sanxia. The Atayal people in Taiwo were former residents of Taipei county during those times.
The Atayal people in Taiwo were mostly in poor financial situation and had no money to build anything, so the elders initiated self-help program, where the tribe people went to the rivers to quarry stones to be used as construction material.
The old Sanming church is not only the center of faith for the Atayal people in Taiwo, but also the venue where they carry out tranditional activities.
