Number one on Yahoo Kimo's list of the top ten scariest haunted houses in Taiwan is the Minxiong Ghost House, which is located in Chiayi County's Minxiong Township. Although there are many taboos that are meant to help people avoid ghoulish gaffes, the mansion sees its peak number of visitors during Ghost Month.
The mansion dates to 1929 and was built by a local businessman by the name of Liu Rongyu (劉溶裕). However, it was abandoned a few short years after construction was completed.
There are many legends about the mansion. One story goes that a maidservant secretly had an affair with the home's owner, but once the man's wife discovered the affair, she tortured the servant.
