The Dapu Stone Inscription was discovered by the ROC Armed Forces in 1953, and made a class 3 protected historical site. The inscription records the capture of 69 Japanese pirates without a single Chinese casualty in the 45th year of the reign of the Wanli Emperor of the Ming Dynasty (1617), as written about by the Fujian official and author Dong Yingju.

The Dapu Stone Inscription is not merely a record of a glorious triumph by the famed general Shen You-rong; local legend has it that the inscription itself contains clues to the location of treasure hidden somewhere on the island of Dongju. Maybe you’ll be the one to finally break the code!
