Thursday: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.

    Does size matter ???


    This is a massive complex that is visually impressive with beautiful grounds. There is a very large statue of Chiang Kai Shek in a seated position that reminds me of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. Although the complex is huge, I just didn't see that much devoted to its namesake.

    A new experience, good but not astonishing...It’s a must see on tourist recommendations. It’s impressive as comunist monument Chan Kai Shek was the Taiwan modern state founder.

    Beautiful and nicely landscaped...great complex to explore.


    I loved this building complex, not only for the unique architecture and the views, but also how multi-purpose the building was. It contained a number of exhibition rooms inside and it was interesting to see the world class exhibits there (Egyptian artifacts were being shown in one area). But what i love the most about this complex is that its beautiful gardens and how it sits adjacent to the classically styled performing arts complex. The entire group of buildings and landscaped areas, really are quite beautiful and make a lovely historic centre of town. Take at least a few hours to wander around and take in the entire complex.

    This site can easily be walked. If you have the time, check the schedule for changing of the guards and get there early as space fills up. Whole area can be visited between 1 - 2 hours or longer if you just want to enjoy the gardens.
