    The Hall is a short 10 mins walk from Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall Station. It’s quite hidden from the nearby tall buildings and neighbourhood. We walked past the Garden with the famous stature of Father of the Republic of China’ before reaching the steps There were some rehearsals of martial arts team outside (for Event?) while group of youngsters are practicing their (K-pop) dance moves along the broad corridor. Indeed reflecting its setting as a good place for the public for sports and recreation activities. Within the large Hall stood a huge hall with a statue of Sun Yat Sen. Walked round both sides and there are areas that display displays of Sun's life and the revolution he led against the last Chinese Dynasty. The historical relics of Sun's life and the Xinhai Revolution were indeed educational. The Hall also houses multi-purpose social, educational and cultural center for the public (Golden Horse Award venue?). The hall also serves an educational and research role, hosting various cultural and art events throughout the year There is a changing of the guard every hour, an interesting display of synchronous military drills and smartly executive moves!. Love it

    The Sun Yet Sent is a memorial building to the Father of the Chinese nation. He was instrumental in removing the last reigning dynasty.

    Interesting memorial

    2020-02

    Sun Yat Sen is a towering figure in modern Chinese history, and this building does justice to his legacy. However, the actual exhibits, considering the source material, are a bit thin; would have like more information about Dr Yat Sen. But the building itself is worth the visit, and don't miss the upper floors, which have a rotating variety of art exhibits. And the surrounding park is very pleasant, and it's a quick walk from the MRT.

    Not as impressive as the Chiang Kai Shek memorial but has an interesting exhibition about Dr Sun Yat Sen’s life and the founding of Taiwan. The changing of the guards was also interesting. With covid-19 precautions everywhere, your temperature will be checked before you are allowed to enter and there is hand sanitiser at each entrance. It is close to Taipei 101 and you can get some good photos of the tower from here and the surrounding streets.

    Great memorial with beautiful gardens

    2020-02

    It is a short walk from the MRT station and you can see Taipei 101 which is not far away. The memorial hall is situated with beautiful gardens around it. Entry is free and the exhibition is interesting and gives information on Sun Yat Sen’s life history . There is a huge hall with a statue of Sun Yat Sen but no where as big as the memorial hall and statue of Chiang Kai Shek. There is a changing of the guard every hour. There weren’t many tourists , probably due to the Corona virus situation, but on entry everyone was temperature checked and there was hand sanitiser available. In the galleries there was an exhibition of paintings in the traditional style which was really interesting to view. As Sun Yat Sen is considered the father of modern China, this is worth a visit if you have an interest in Chinese history. Also as Chiang Kai Shek was part of his history , then its even more pertinent for Taiwan’s history.
