History

During the construction work of the back part of Taitung Station in 1980, a historic settlement area was discovered when graveyard containing several thousand slate coffins was unearthed, with some bodies still laid within. Around 20,000 pieces of jade, pottery and stone tools were also found. This had caught the attention of the government to carry out archaeological work and build a national museum to preserve the artifacts. The area officially opened in 1997 as the Beinan Cultural Park.

Structure

There are three island platforms.

Service

All service classes of the TRA except the Taroko Express. This is because the Taroko class is exclusively used on the northern half of the Eastern Line. Only the "Puyuma Express" runs the full length from Taipei to Taitung after electrification of the Eastern Line was completed in July 2014.
