4 7226 Reviews

Monday: 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.

    Great buildings, tricky history


    Impressive buildings that are worth a visit, and the grounds are large to walk around. Not enough information and context around the troubled history and meaning of the memorial for tourists though (and can be a bit busy) so worth reading up beforehand

    Great place to visit and gorgeous buildings


    I was very happy to visit the CKS Memorial Hall. The buildings are huge and beautiful, especially the huge white structure with the blue tiled roof. I also happened to be visiting on the hour so I could watch the changing of the guard. Definitely worth a stop while in Taipei!

    Worth a visit if you've never been!


    My partner and I have not visited Liberty Square since 2005. We went back to visit it in March 2019 because our friend Susan was traveling with us, and she had never been to Asia before. We took the MRT to CKS Memorial Hall Station, and upon exiting the station, you are practically at Liberty Square. One of the first things Susan said was "Wow" and "I'm glad we came to see this." So I think if you've never visited Taiwan before, it is worth a visit. We timed our visit so that we could also see the changing of the guards at the CKS Memorial Hall. The changing of the guards was interesting, but we would not recommend that you go out of your way to time your visit to see it.

    A must visit when in Taipei.


    It's good to know the history of Taiwan and Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall is one of them to pay a visit. If you want an Instagram impressive pictures, I recommend to visit in the morning when it is not too crowded or if you just want to relax and imagine the past. I'm glad I've visited it. It's impressive.
