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.

    We went to CKS Memorial Hall in the afternoon. As usual, the place is packed of tourists. There were floats covered with colorful flowers which added excitement to the people taking photos. The CKS Memorial stood proud as the sun sets. We were also able to watch the changing of guards.

    Lovely gardens but not for the less mobile.

    The Memorial Hall itself was partially closed for renovations when we went and as the crowd was around 6 deep in the one area available to watch the changing of the guard, we didn't see a thing. We were there 15 mins beforehand and it was raining so the people at the front must have been standing around for ages. Also there are a lot of stairs so this is not one for the less mobile. The gardens, however, are really lovely with bridges over fish ponds and lots of trees and flowers. The concert hall at the other end of the avenue from the memorial has a very nice coffee shop and gift shop.

    Watch the changing of the guard

    The changing of the guard occurs every day at the CKS Memorial Hall on the hour. It is precision drill at its best. It is always well attended, get there early. The museum underneath the monument describes the life and times of CKS. He led the non-Communist forces to Taiwan and guided the island through its first turbulent years. Chiang Kai-shek may or may not have been a hero, but you can't ignore him.

    Yes, a giant seated statue of Chiang Kai-Shek sits in a Memorial Hall that dominates the park and is the centerpiece of a collection of architectural buildings. You must come here because the setting of the Hall along with the National Theatre and Concert Hall and Entry Gate create a stunning architectural square in the park. Perhaps one of the grandest in the world. The Hall itself requires you to ascend a number of stairs where you get great views. The hall with the seated statue does have an armed guard that changes every hour and some like it, I found it a bit over-the-top. From the top floor where the statue is you can take an elevator down to the bottom floor where there are shops, other galleries and the thing I liked best—a biography on Chiang Kai-Shek who is a very controversial figure here in Taiwan. Given that the history museum in this town is closed, this is where you can learn about the life of the general. Overall we were in this building about an hour.
