Introduction

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.

    Highlight of trip to Taipei

    2019-08

    I spent around 90 minutes walking around the grounds and attending the changing of the guards on the hour. It was a very respectful ceremony. The grounds were well kept and it’s a great place for pictures. Be prepared for intense heat in the summer!

    The size of the buildings is amazing. The grounds are well-maintained. All three buildings have shops underneath. Can buy tourist souvenirs here.

    A Large Building

    2019-08

    I came here last week and it is near to the MRT station. The entrance is FOC. Anyway, there are shops in the building on the ground floor selling souvenirs etc. It's good to come if you would like to admire architecture and culture plus history,otherwise nothing much it can offer. There's a park nearby if you want to do some exercise.

    Changing of the guard

    2019-08

    We visited during a sweltering afternoon and enjoyed watching the changing of the guard (once in the shade). There is an interesting account of the history and several exhibitions inside- some child-friendly. I particularly enjoyed the fish art work. Lovely grounds with ponds. Worth a visit.

    Enormous!!!

    2019-08

    Felt something familiar to Lincoln Memorial, space full park, Chiang Kai Shek looking over to China. The military personnel changes hourly, in very accurate moves.It was so hot with the afternoon sun and every one there was sweating, but even in that condition, they don't blink an eye!
