Ta Cheng Palace
Besides the icon of dragon, the hornless dragon stair is decorated with literal scripts and it was reserved only for those who held the first place in an imperial examination when conducting the ceremonial with the emperor, a legacy that followed on. On both sides of the hornless stair and to the east and west of the platform, there are stairs for access and the platform itself is paved with stone slabs that remind us of ancient years. Ta Cheng Palace is a little taller than the drainage. Some say they resemble a turtle’s head meaning victory. Others say it stands for the water-going son of the dragon that had 9 offspring. The Ta Cheng Palace’s roof is in “hip-and-gable” style. There is a 9-story pagoda in the middle, with dragons on either side.
