The Puyuma tribes settled nearby the Peinan Site are situated on a broad alluvial river terrace. The tribes face Tulan Mt. across the Peinan River on the north. At the distance of approximately 5 or 6 km to the east is the Pacific Ocean. At the west is the Peinan Mt., and at the south is the Taiping Brook. This paradise between the Peinan River and the Taiping Brook is the dwelling and farming site to Puyuma tribes in the old days.

villlage. One legend tells, Tulan Mt. was
the holy mountain for one of the Puyuma
