 History of the Chiayi County Council
In the past, Chiayi County was called as "Tien Hsing." Later, it was renamed as Chu Luo. In 1788, during the Ching Dynasty, the head of the Heaven and Earth Society Lin Shuang-wun rebelled against the Ching Court and attacked Chu Luo. In 1790, peace was restored.
