Tsai Pan-long, also named Shi, Chun-chong or Yao-chou, was a native of Chiunglin, Kinmen. He was recognized as "Tiger General" because he helped suppressed Lin Shuang-wen's rebellion in Taiwan. He was engaged in 83 battles and made lots of achievements, and therefore, in 1787, he was conferred upon
a title of "Chian Yong Ba Tu Lu," which meant "a brave warrior" in the Man language. In 1798, he died at the age of 61, when he was holding a position as commander of Langshan Township. Tsai's tomb, located at Chinglin near Mount Taiwu (now known as Wuyangdao of Mingte Park), is on a circular mound
surrounded by beefwood. The tomb is made of three pieces of granite stone. The central part of the tombstone is in a rectangular form with fox-shaped tomb wings on either side. There are granite pillars in a pair, which are octagonal in crosssection. On the capital of either pillar lies a stone lion. The left one is male, while the right one is female. The whole tomb is three-mountain-shaped. Although the tombstone is inclined, the inscription is still legible. The altar is the most delicate part in terms of carvings. An image of two dragons mating framed with the pattern of crabapple is carved in the central part of the altar with "卍" motifs on either side. There are carvings of cursive grass on the base. The stone pillars in the graveyard
are the most intact of its kind in Kinmen.
