Tuesday: 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.

    Shimmering in the heat


    It was 36 C when we visited and with all the concrete around this square it must have been near 42! The memorial hall is so significant to Taiwan, Taipei and to may of us Hong Kongers. The memorial is beautifully constructed and I also recommend the museum that is attached to it, which has an overview of Taiwan's history, Chiang Kai Shek, and even has his cars on display. There were a number of other exhibits on display at the time as well. I would say this is a must see, and its significance needs to be appreciated historically, socially and symbolically, particularly if you are Chinese or have connections to the region.

    Very nice monument


    Nice monument. It is a good place to take picture and to learn about the history of Taiwan with Chiang Kai Sek as the first leader. Good ambience. Please to try to see the guard change ceremony.

    Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall & Liberty Square


    We visited the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall and Liberty Square area as part of our all day cruise ship excursion of Taipei. There were lots of people there. Some groups, some locals, and it looked like maybe some sort of local rally or protest as well. The Liberty Square area is large and you can get nice photos from pretty much any of the entrance areas. There is no fee to visit this area. The local subway as well as the hop-on-hop-off bus stops very close as well. If you're in Taipei, it is worth a photo stop.

    A Lovely park to spend time in


    The name is Chang Kai Shek Memorial Plaza, but there is more there. The memorial itself is quite impressive. A large and impressive structure, it is a great memorial to the great former leader of Taiwan. From the top, the view of the plaza is lovely. Inside the statue is quite impressive and the changing of the guard is dramatic. (Be aware that photos are not allowed inside the building.) The plaza is lovely to walk around. Gardens and then flanked on both sides by the National Theater. A lovely pond with animals and birds with shade trees to get out of the direct sun. The entry gates are also very impressive. Go. Take your time. Spend time walking around the whole property.

    chiang kai shek memorial hall


    Do you know who is chiang kai shek, a controvisal person who take Taiwan from the local tribe even they are mostly from FuJian of China. He was the leader in mainland China and lose the battle with the revolutionary army and retreat Taiwan island. It is why we hear PRC and ROC. The memorial hall may give you more information and best know attraction is the soldier who swing the guns stylishly like a performance when change position with other soldier who would stand still for a while (one hour I guess) please check the time and video them
