Wednesday: 09:00 – 18:00




This memorial hall was built in memory of Chiang Kai-shek, the first president of the Republic of China. Work on the hall began in 1976, a year after President Chiang passed away. Design by C.C. Yang, who was also the architect for The Grand Hotel, the memorial hall is white with a blue roof, representing the dominant colors in the ROC flag; while the emblem of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) adorns the vaulted ceiling. A bronze statue of Chiang looks west symbolically to the Presidential Office Building and mainland China. The front plaza of the hall is also a major venue for democratic assemblies.

    It is a Grand Memorial!


    I don’t know anything about Chiang Kai-Shek but was immediately impressed by the grandness of the place. The two Temples on the left and right side of the main memorial hall was so big and so intricately made. The whole area was so big that it will take you at least 10 minutes to walk from the entrance to the memorial hall. The place was so impressively grand and yet so clean. You will not see a single trash. There are plenty of visitors even on a week day but the place was very orderly. Most of the spots we visited in Taiwan were free and this is one of them. I even saw the Luxury car that supposedly came from the Philippines. The changing of the guards will top off the experience of visiting this memorial place.

    Watch the guard change


    We went here not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. We unexpectedly made it right around the guard changing and it was nice to watch. There was also an English speaking volunteer that we got to ask some historical questions and she was awesome. She even made suggestions for us on where to go after.

    Impressive monument, nice 10-minute show


    The monument itself is impressive and reminded me of the Lincoln memorial in DC. But you go there for the changing of the guard, every hour until 17:00. It's about 10-minutes long, but if you like military drills and looking for a nice show (for free) it's a nice thing to watch. Also, the memorial is within walking distance from a busy shopping area, so you can plan your day accordingly and don't have to come specially for the ceremony. Look in advance for other attractions close by, so you don't waste your time
