The garden began as the arboretum of the Taihoku Imperial University and was planted with various tropical flora for research purposes. As some of the plant species were unable to adapt to Taipei’s cold and damp winter climate, only a handful of them survived to this day. Following the passing of University President Fu Ssu-nien in 1950, a monument in the style of the Greek Parthenon, which includes the mausoleum that houses the president’s ashes, was constructed on the grounds to commemorate him. The arboretum was also renamed Fu Garden in his honor.
