National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall

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 Place


    Went here with my family and they had an event during our visit. There were military equipment and soldiers I believe. They also held some games for the visitors and could win some things like mugs, fans, pens etc. Though it was a hot day, people were eager to participate on taking pictures and played some games. Although we weren't able to get to see the whole premise, we were still amazed on the architecture and view of the place.

    That's the only word that comes to mind incessantly while walking the grounds. The Taiwanese clearly loved this president of theirs. Many of his belongings were on display. His military uniform, the military medals, his sedan chair, his cars. Even his math homework as a kid was displayed. While many would baulk at the adorations, he was a necessary historical character for modern Taiwan. Clearly he lived the life akin to that of an emperor. The sprawling grounds of the memorial and the architecture of the buildings bore testimony to that

    Very Iconic


    This is a must see in Taiwan. The place is beautiful, clean and picturesque. There is also a very nice park and a pond near inside the memorial hall.

    Lovely memorial hall - a history of Taiwan..


    It is easy to find and there is an MRT stop for this place. We came here to learn more on how Taiwan came about and were not disappointed. An easy stroll around the garden and ground areas to the hall. You can skip the stairs and go for the lift. There is changing of the guards ceremony and opportunity to glimpse the history of Chiang Kai-Shek's life, the founding father and first president of Taiwan. There is even a car model he used for his state affairs. Lovely.
