    Powerful monument


    Tackling Taipei in summer is hard work but this monument was worth the trek across wide open surrounds to the hall. Inside honour guard stands rigidly still in front of giant statue of the great man (much like Lincoln’s in Washington). Surrounding rooms have wonderful displays (in English too) tell his story and that of modern Taiwan. No air con that I could discern and very few seats to sit and soak it all in. A great building and well worth the visit. Nearby subway links you to temples and markets quickly and cooly.

    Great sense of glory and history


    It is greatly gratifying to see giant flags of the Republic of China flanking a bronze statue of the country's founder especially as an ethnic Chinese, to see the sacrifices and endeavors our forefathers have made in order to found a free nation and to secure the basic civil rights we deserve to have as human beings. After going through the exhibits, one would render great respect for the country and be thankful that this free part of China has not yet been trampled upon by the communists. We were very lucky to have timed our visit to catch the daily flag-lowering ceremony. Fixing my eyes on the descending flag illuminated by the warm and graceful sunlight with the Flag Anthem resounding throughout the Agora, images of the country's history conjured up in my head.

    Good view for pictures


    Good view for pictures on the top but the inside might not be for everyone, the guards also move certain hours so besides a big statue you won’t se much inside. But the climb is not really high, so it’s worth it.

    Must see area


    Try to go when they do the changing of the guard (I think it happens every hour). It's neat to see. The whole area is a great spot to wander around and see the huge buildings (the whole square). If you go to Taipei you need to visit here.
