Zhongshan Hall 中山堂

Zhongshan Hall was built in 1928, during Japanese colonial era, to commemorate the accession of Emperor Hirohito. Known at that time as the Taipei Assembly Hall, the building was faced in light green tile to make it less visible to aerial bombers. The windows are adorned with classical designs in a Spanish Islamic style. With its 1,500 person seating capacity, the hall served as an important activity center during the Japanese colonial era. After Taiwan's retrocession, the building was renamed as the Zhongshan Hall and used for the reception of foreign dignitaries. In 1992, the hall was designated as a national grade two historic site.

    A great venue for concerts


    We were lucky that we visited this venue in a Sunday afternoon. It is here that the Japanese signed the surrender documents at the end of WW II. There was a Mozart concert scheduled for that afternoon and we were fortunate that it was not sold out. It featured the Taipei symphony, was wonderful and it was very inexpensive.

    An iconic 1936 building


    I visited Zhongshan Hall which used to be an important venue for special events and is still in use today. While i was there , an exhibition about cameras, movies, records and music was being held, but i am not sure if this is permanent or not. 2000 people can be seated in the great hall.

    A Different Building In Taipei


    Zhongshan Hall was built in 1936 and is a mixture of western and modern design. It was built for the coronation of Emporor Hirohito and is where thre Japanese surrender cemonary in 1945 and later when Chiang Kai-sheck delivered public speeches following his re-elections and is worth seeing.There is a park at the back with public conveniences.

    Nothing very special


    We stopped here to take some photos during our walking tour. The building was built by the Japanese colonial government as a city hall. It was later renamed after Dr Sun Zhong Shan. Interesting to visit if you are in the nearby area. The square in front is a nice place to take photos.

    Worth a short stop


    Another interesting building in Taipei, worth stopping to see if you are in the area. Built during the Japanese occupation, it has an interesting history. There is another statue of Dr Sun Yat Sen in the adjacent park
