Friday: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.

    Where history stays alive


    Very nice place to Visit if you were in Taipei. It’s next to the MRT station so It’s convenient to get to. We went there a bit late so we missed the last Guards’ changing shift. If I am not mistaken it takes place every hour. The last change will happen at 16.30. Then if you wait long enough they will lower the flag as well which is cool to watch. Take your time and learn the history as well. I recommend going there with a tour guide so you learn a bit more about Chiang Kai-shek. If not, that’s fine too. There are english descriptions for you to enjoy.

    Highlight of Taipei


    We are not touristy but this was remarkable. A must in Taipei. And a wonderful spacious reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city around it.

    Even when we went there on a rainy day, I couldn't help but appreciate the architectural design and the aesthetics of the gardens and the whole grounds. From afar, it would seem like you are transported into a different time as it has been well preserved and not touched by any commercialization.

    Worth a visit


    Even if you're only interested in over-the-top massive edifices, this would be your place. And it's got a lovely park around it, so a good stop to rest as you sight-see. Two of the buildings on campus are for the performance arts, and the main building is the memorial. There's a changing of the guard ceremony, and a section with the life and history of CKS. It's all worth seeing. But of particular interest-on the second floor there is an art exhibition section. The weekend we visited must have been the opening weekend for a specific exhibit, as there were lovely paintings-and some of the most beautiful flower arrangements I have ever seen. So stop by and see all the building has to offer.

    Worth visiting.


    This place is very beautiful. Even though its not much to see but the walk to the memorial hall fells like going back in time. Its nice to just sit in the garden and relax ,just look at people walk by.Then climb up to see the statue and look at the view from up there. Breath taking.
