How Dashu Got Its Name

According to legend, there was an old banyan tree near the Gaoping River over two centuries ago. An opera troupe passed the tree and it took the entire company to encircle the tree trunk hand in hand. Afterwards, the area was called “Dashujiao (under the tree)”. During the Era of Tongjhi, the Gaoping River flooded and the rapid currents washed the tree away. Although the tree was gone, the name “Dashu” remains. That’s how the town got its name.
