This is a geological structure located along the beach near Keelung, Taiwan. It consists of Miocene sandstone of the Daliao Formation, which was cut into the shape of bean curds by two sets of vertical joints. Compounded by marine erosion, this structure has formed a distinctive landform and may develop further into mushroom-shaped rock features (Fig. 14).
