National Martyrs’ Shrine 臺北忠烈祠

Anchor point

Introduction

Built on a green hillside in 1969, the impressive National Martyrs’ Shrine was architecturally inspired by the Hall of Supreme Harmony in Beijing's Forbidden City. The shrine is dedicated to the 390,000 soldiers killed in the service of their country during the War of Resistance against Japan and the civil war between the Chinese Republican and communist forces. A major attraction at the shrine is the hourly ceremony for the changing of the honor guard in front of the main gate.

    Learn history to avoid repeating it

    The mood is solemn as we visited this shrine. It is a good reminder to invest in learning history to avoid the mistakes of repeating it. Every hour you will have opportunity to see changing of the guard. This is a phenomenal sight to see.

    Precision drill maneuver is the draw-card

    2020-01

    The Martyrs' Shine commemorates at those soldiers who died in China's revolutionary wars in the 20th century. The Shrine is a fine structure, but the main attraction is the changing of the guard, every hour. This precision drill maneuver is a "must see" for visitors to Taipei.

    It was a good experience to pay such a shrine. And many interesting buildings with the colourful roottop. This was one of the must visit places for the tourists.

    Very historical with lots of interesting scenery and photo opportunities. The changing of the guards, which happens on the hour, is something to be seen.
