4 6338 Reviews

Saturday: 09:00 – 18:00


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.

    Very Huge Memorial Shrine


    It was kind of a big memorial place to visit established for their leaders. Nice view of the gardens and memorial halls. especially at the hall were the great leader was sitting on a big chair, the statue is so big and guarded with soldiers. Another perfect destination in Taipei Taiwan.

    Visually impressive


    Sun Yat-sen might have tipped over the first domino to establish the Republic of China, but it was his former Chief of Staff, Chiang Kai-shek who carried the load the longest. Considering he was the leader of the Republic of China for 48 years, 46 days (third-longest-ruling non-royal since 1900), it’s little wonder that he commands such an enormous shrine. It’s photographically impressive, so be sure to have the sun at your back in the afternoon. There are 90 steps to get up to the top of the hall in order to see the giant statue of CKS. The gardens are a nice place to escape the sun. Inside, you can learn all about his tenure and his exile to Taiwan after being defeated on mainland China by the Communists. It’s a stop right on the Metro’s Green Line, so it’s quite easy to get to.

    Changing of the Guards.


    We were on a business trip and decided to go to Chiang Kai-Shek to see the changing of the guards. It was a wet and windy day, and still very warm. This is well worth viewing! The changing of the guards takes about 10 minutes, the guards are trained not to blink much and not to move much. The guards would mirror each other in all major movements. It is really well done!

    Great to see changing guard


    Recommend to go in the morning, less people and not too hot. I did walk around the place and see the changing guard at the memorial hall.
