National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall

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.

    Huge place to walk around but not recommended in the sweltering heat.

    There was nothing much to see or do there, other than take some selfies (and tell your friends you've been there). So, go only if you want some pictures with the buildings, or if there is an event being held there (that you actually want to attend). When we went (4 days ago on 20 Sep), the CKS building was under renovation (half the building was hidden away behind construction material). The change of guards is also over-rated and felt like it was being done for tourists to watch rather than a symbolic / historic / cultural practice. If you have watched the changing of guards in Buckingham Palace, give this a miss.

    Really interesting to know more about Chiang Kai-Sheks role in Chinese history. If you know who Churchill and Roosevelt are but not Chiang Kai-Sheks you need to visit and find out.

    Go if you want to learn more about cks' life. There's a changing of guard ceremony held in the hall which was pretty cool. Worth watching if you've got nothing else to do. Take note that the guards start marching from the stair/ lift lobby on cks' left. Stand around that area for closer photos.

    Would like to pay another visit because I’m in rush that day. There’s a post Office inside, it is so convenient if you already bought a postcard, you may buy a stamp over the counter and post it out.

    A "must see" place

    2017-08

    The place is nice to visit, although its a bit raining when we visited the place still worth it. We dont have enough time to see the whole place because we are running out of time. Because i live in kaohsiung city and We just have to explore Taipei for just a day. You should visit this place ;)
