    The Dr Sun Yet Sen Memorial Hall is well worth a visit. No entry charge. Various halls exhibit artifacts from his life. There are also halls exhibiting various genres of art - some contemporary, some more traditional, bit all very interesting. There is also a study hall where research can be done. Every hour, on the hour, there is a ceremony for the changing of the guard at the main entrance. The military precision is amazing and a visit should be timed to incorporate this. There is a buffet restaurant in the basement, somewhat expensive. Also a large and another smaller gift shop selling high quality gifts. The grounds are worth walking around. There is a lake as well. It is a 5 minute walk from exit 4 of the Sun Yet Sun MTR station, so is easily accessible. There is also a state of the art theatre with various cultural productions.

    Buddha's Relics were Shown Here in Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall


    This Year, the Original Buddhism Society held a ceremony, welcoming part of Buddha's relics to be shown in Taiwan. Taiwan is peaceful, serene, and the people are known for our hospitality to foreigners. Sun Yet Sen was the Fouding Father of China's Republic Government, but his heir Chiang Kai Shek lost the war against the Communist Party. Nevertheless, Taiwan and China both share the same Founding Father in Sun Yat Sen, and nowadays we are closer than ever (at least two years ago). We also share the same faith in that we believe we will be united one day, in one way or another, perhaps by marrying each other. Name Guru Padma Siddi Hom

    Interesting Changing of Guards and Beautiful Front Gardens


    The garden area in front of the memorial hall was very well-maintained with lots of colorful, vibrant, flowers that was very inviting. A fountain likewise exists in the middle of the flower garden and the hall, which adds to the refreshing ambiance of the place. Like in the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, the regular routine when guards change is very interesting for visitors to witness. It is a good place to relax and just enjoy the view of the fountain and flowers.

    Close to Taipei 101 area


    The changing of the guards happens at the top of the hour (9am-6pm). There is also a small water fountain show accompanied by music in front (usually in the afternoons on the half hour…check the sign in front of the Hall that posts when the water fountain show begins). Free museum dedicated to SYS history; gift shop, a few snack stalls & clean bathrooms on site. Can spend 1-2 hours exploring the grounds/garden, museum, and watch the changing of the guards and water fountain show.

    Impressive hall and changing of the guard


    If you are at the Grand Hyatt or Taipei 101 you will see the hall forward to your left. If not take the blue line and get off at Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall stop. Follow the signs. It is very close. In front of the hall is a huge park, nicely manicured, with trees and flowers. Just in front of the hall is a huge fountain display which is quite interesting. As you can see from my pics, there are a number of steps up to the hall. I do not remember seeing a lift, better check ahead of time if needed. The front of the hall with the statute is quite impressive. Also there is large rooms I imagine for meetings, and exhibitions. The side rooms also house history of Dr. Sun and his beginning development of Taiwan. On the hour was the changing of the guards. A very simple but respectful ceremony. Try to be there for that.
