Indemnification Church—Sikou Church

Sikou Church

Sikou Church

Add: No. 105, Raohe St. Taipei City
Sikou Church was founded by a Canadian, Dr. Mackay. After the war between the Ching Dynasty and France broke out, the residents in Sikou thought that the church had been built by the French and therefore destroyed it. Afterwards, the church protested to the governor of Taiwan Liu Ming-Chuan, so the Ching government offered $10,000 to compensate for the loss. This church, hence, is also called the Indemnification Church. In addition to Sikou Church, three other churches in Mengjia, Dalongdong, and Sindian were also destroyed in this incident.
