Kaohsiung >  Former Kaohsiung Station

Built in the 1940s, the building is shaped in imperial crown style. "Eclectic" main frame and traditional Japanese roof symbolize authority as well as the extension of Japan's militarism. Notable features include arris roof, round windows and ornamental motifs of oriental flavor. Four large interior columns employing a mixture of Egyptian palm column cap and typical oriental element of corbel, together with plafond, give off a strong oriental tone. It is a typical architecture of Hsingya (features dome shaped like soldier's helmet) and imperial crown styles during Japanese period.
