The Lin Family Mansion and Garden， a level two national monument， is a well-known historical complex and Taiwan's best-preserved historical estate. It was built by the Lin Ben-Yyuan family when it migrated to Taiwan during the Qing dynasty and was listed by the Michelin Green Guide as a three-star， must-see site. Its carved artifacts， decorative window screens， garden scenery， and seasonal plants are representative of the Qing dynasty's beauty， and when you walk through its corridors and halls you get a glimpse of what gentry life was like during the era. Take the time to look at the inscribed boards and names of each structure， including the Jigu Study， Lai-Cching Hall， Fang-Jjian Study， and Guan-Jjia Hall. It is like a stroll through time that becomes filled with additional meaning the deeper you go. When you are finished at the mansion and garden， neighboring it is another charming spot called Wenchang Street. In front of an ancient stone wall is a dozen or so face threading stands， where customers can enjoy a traditional outdoor spa experience.
