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.

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


    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.

    Prominent Landmark in Taipei


    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.

    Taipei's Major Landmark


    Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall is indeed the main landmark of Taiwan. It features acres of landscaped gardens, huge temples, the memorial hall and monument of Chiang Kai-Shek. This picturesque landmark is a perfect spot for your instagrammable photos. It is surprising to know that Chiang is not buried in his memorial site however the memorial hall itself symbolizes the country's emblem of blue sky and white sun through its white walls and blue tiles. The stair steps is 89 which is the age of Chiang when he died. Upon entering the hall, you'll see his giant bronze sculpture and on the left side, you can enter a small exhibit to know more of his life's history and the construction stages of the landmark. Best time to go here is during the late afternoon so you can see the transition of day and night as they lit the landmark beautifully during the evening. You can also catch the performance of the changing of guard ceremony that is scheduled hourly. The view from the hall offers a great view of the entire landmark. Opening hours: 9am to 6pm
