    History and humbleness


    The memorial hall is really large. It is very easy to find. The metro station is close to the main entrance. The gardens are very well kept! There is an excellent coffee shop in one of the corners with wonderful ice cream! The views of Taipei 101 in am and pm are wonderful. Yes, see the change of guard but only do that. Visit the museum on Dr. Sun Yat Sen and the other galleries with temporal exhibits and spent time there. The exhibits are on mainly on modern art created by many artists, mainly from Taiwan. Art is inspiring and combines modern elements with Taiwanese tradition and history. Entrance is free. Not crowded at all. We stayed there for 3 hours.

    Beautiful Memorial and Park


    We visited the memorial with the entire family when in Taipei for my brother’s wedding. It is truly a very beautiful memorial, and it is worth arriving on time to see the changing of the guards. This takes several minutes for the guards to go through their maneuvers, but be sure to have your camera ready if you want to take pictures. Once the door opens the activity begins quite immediately! Once the changing of the guards is complete, enjoy a peaceful stroll through the very well-manicured ponds and landscaping.

    Changing of the guard


    Lot of tourists come here to see the changing of the guard. I have seen it a few times during my visits of Taiwan (even caught a rare mishap when one of the guards dropped his rifle while flipping it) but it is always fun. The memorial hall also houses lots of information about Dr Sun as well as special exhibitions of various nature. You do need to have some sense of modern Chinese history to fully appreciate everything there but it is worth a visit regardless.

    Father of modern China


    Sun Yat-sen, or Dr Sun as he is commonly called, is acknowledged a the Father of modern China on both sides of the Taiwan Strait. The Memorial Hall is part museum and part activity space. The Memorial Hall often has interesting visiting exhibitions. If you visit the Memorial Hall, you should not miss the changing of the guard.The gardens are kept in good condition and make for a pleasant stroll.

    Beautiful landscapes and historical cultural place


    Sun yat sen memorial park greets you with beautiful gorgeous landscaped gardens and the stunning colors will make you realize no filter is needed for your photos out here ! Inside there is also a museum where you can read and find out about Sun yat sen's life and times. I was lucky to also find a painting exhibit inside and some of the dancer paintings were just to my taste /! You can also see Taipei 101 from the park and there is also a change of guard ceremony that is nice to partake in to see the honours of the ceremonious procedures.. there is also a pond with fishes here.all in all, a great experience.
