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.

    Quick photo stop

    The grounds are well kept and clean. There isn’t much to see or do but it is a requisite stop for people in the area. If you are not able to get a first or second row spot to see the changing of the guards, it is very hard to observe.

    Great place, beautiful park, interesting museum in the basement. Make sure you wait until full hour to see the changing of the guards!

    Don’t miss this

    Be on the 3rd floor on the top of each hour. There is a precision “changing if the guard”. Side elevator and inside elevator will take you there. Will there be a line? Allow plenty of time.

    Don't miss changing of the guard

    2018-10

    Although we had read about the Memorial Hall pre going to visit, we completely forgot about the changing of the guard and just happened to chance upon it while we were there. The changing of the guard gets quite busy with onlookers so try and arrive a few minutes before the hour to get a good position. Best of all it's free! Once you're out in the grounds you'll see the tiled ground patterns and large spaces make for great photos.

    Stunning

    2019-03

    The complex contains the National Theatre and National Concert Hall separated by Freedom Square, but it is the four story building at the centre which is the main attraction. As well as learning about Chiang Kia-Shek is a series of rooms devoted to his life and work, there are other areas with temporary exhibitions. On the top floor is a large statue of the man himself, guarded by a couple of military personnel. Every hour the guard changes with a ritual which, shall we say, it would be unlikely for the Coldstream Guards to undertake. It is well worth seeing as a climax of a visit to a remarkable place.
