Zhongshan Hall 中山堂

Anchor point
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.

    Historic building


    Zhongshan Hall is a historic building near Ximending. This large building was Taipei's city hall during Japanese rule and has hosted many heads of states. It is now a cultural centre with a small exhibitio on its history.

    Wander this behemoth


    We felt as though we had this amazingly large place to ourselves but we loved it. We found two huge halls for concerts (both with folks setting up) and a wonderful temporary exhibit on an amazing Taiwanese author who created both architectural and natural works of amazing beauty. There is a great little video on the first floor that will orient you to the huge space - and its history. Fun to explore.

    Nice Place


    a good place to drop by if it's on the way. Not necessary to go here for this.But not much to do in here, Nice park in front of it too.

    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.
