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.

    Interesting but few exhibits


    Free entry and the memorial is made really grand. The change of guard ceremony is slightly elaborate but there aren't enough exhibits when we visited

    Marching band


    The Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall is great to visit. There is quite an open space there that U can walk around. It was kind of windy that day I was there. Walking up to one of the Hall n they have a marching band marching the hall every hour n we took some pictures n video. It’s not far from our hotel so we end up walking back to the hotel. Also, there is a book store n coffee shop there that U can have a coffee break. Overall, it’s a good visit there. D. Tow

    Heart Of Taipei


    Every great city has it's square. Its center. For Taipei it's Chang Kai-Shek memorial. It is Huge! The gardens well kept and trimed. The entire pace is clean and pleasant to walk around in. The main gate and the chang kai shek hall are decked in Blue and White which makes it pleasant to the eyes. The place is directly outside of the Chang Kai-Shek MRT station which makes it very convinient to access. A must in you Taipei itenerary

    Impressive memorial


    The CKS memorial hall is a vast structure built in white marble. By far the most interesting element for me was the vast statue of a smiling general guarded by two remembers of the Taiwan Honour Guard. Every hour, on the hour, the guard is changed in a very interesting display of military drill. Visitors get a very close up view of the event. The hall can be reached by lift or by internal or external stairs. It is set in attractive parklands and is easily accessible

    Free, expansive lawns with tailored gardens. A must watch is the changing of the guards happening every hour on the 5th floor. Good for photo op and explains a lot about early taiwan history. Educational. A short walk from CKS subway station.
