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.

    Nice place full of history

    2019-11

    We thought it was just the massive yet beautiful monument but one needs to go downstairs to see the historical exhibit with the Cadillac cars. I like that the roof has the shape of the letter Ren (person).

    A grand memorial hall

    2019-11

    There are two traditional Chinese buildings next to the memorial hall. We at first thought that’s the hall. The whole park is very nice. Right next to the Metro station.

    Beautiful monument and surrounding grounds

    2019-10

    Beautiful place to visit and its free to the public! Easy access via MRT (Taiwan's version of subways, rail transits, or BART-in Northern California). Great place to have a picnic lunch in the park setting near the monument.
