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.

    Great Monument for a Great Leader who Lost China

    2021-04

    Chiang Kai-shek is the Cantonese pronunciation of 蒋中正, who was the leader of KMT party and won the World War II but in the end lost China because he was to eager to gain power and money, but overlooked the power of the people, who chose CCP’s Mao instead. Nevertheless, the Generalissimo is still remembered for his generosity against the losing Japanese army, and he will always be remembered as a faithful Christian, and when he passed away there was a great thunderstorm all over Taiwan. Taiwan may not be as great economically as China anymore, but it is still the Formosa of Asia, and will always be a great tourist attraction.

    This man made Taiwan strong and free

    2021-03

    Chiang Kai-shek, known as the Generalissimo, established the Republic of China as a vibrant industrial economy and led Taiwan safely through a perilous international environment. By the time he passed away in 1975, Taiwan was known as one of the "Asian Tigers." Chiang was a disciplinarian, but most people accepted this as the price to keep Taiwan safe. This impressive structure is a memorial to a man who refused to give up hope; he made Taiwan strong and free. The guard at Chiang Kai-shek changes on the hour, beginning at 9:00 am. It's worth seeing.

    Spectacular architecture, lovely plaza, historical and delightful stroll spot!

    2020-11

    It is a great spot and landmark in Taipei, if foreigners visits I'll definitely take them come here. You can see a great hero but also a failure in Chinese civil war. If you can explain the history well to the foreigners, then they will have an overall and refresh understanding how difference from ROC and PROC, and why now ROC is located in this small but vivid, beautiful island. Mr. CKS is a builder of ROC in Taiwan, he is the legend absolutely. Bsides understanding the history, it is a great area with the national theater, musical center, plaza and park. You can enjoy a half day in this lovely and beautiful place, the guard changing is a good show for the entertaining and learning ROC culture. If you like art, you can appreciate the maganicant architecture and the windows on the enclosing wall with different design. Highly recommended to visit here to refresh yourself.

    We went by MRT and alighted at the CKS Station. The whole grounds has many buildings and CKS Memorial Hall is quite prominent. Chiang Kai Shek was the founder of ROC and the memorial is an apt reminder of him. Popular tourist destination.

    One of Taipei's 'must see'attractions

    Chiang Kai-shek was President of the Republic of China (ROC) until his death in 1975. This memorial is a good likeness of Chiang, who many regard as the saviour of the ROC. Best way to get there is by MRT,alighting at the CKS Station. By the way, the military guard changes on the hour, baginning at 9:00 am. Get there early, you can expect a big crowd.
