Introduction

“Chuan Xing Fort (E-037)”, also known as “Hushan fort,” is located at the seaside of Hou Bian Hu Shan bay in Jinsha. The fort is 3-levels high and there is an underground tunnel connecting the two underground forts on its right and left sides. The Fort’s name (Chuan Xing means Ship-shaped) came from its resemblance to a warship, with the bow facing towards the shore, creating an interesting scene of a big ship landing on the shore. It was once used to support Han She Hua (E-034) and Hou Bian (E-042), serving as a fort for military deception.

After being decommissioned, Chuan Xing Fort has been left with 3 layers of anti-landing piles that are extremely eye-catching. This uniquely-shaped fort is a rare military base in Kinmen and an attraction point frequently sought by tourists. The “Live and Die with the Battlefield” slogan in the Fort demonstrates the hard work and determination of the soldiers on the Island.

After being renovated by Kinmen National Park Headquarters, it was re-opened on January 10, 2019 and brought to life again as a museum. It is a successful example of a military ruin rejuvenated and reutilized.
