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.

    Interesting stop on our walking tour ...


    After exploring the surrounding grounds (which had statues and historic photographs) we followed LP's advice and went into the Hall after admiring the architecture from the outside only. Three floors .. all well maintained. Exhibitions are mostly in Chinese (there was a nice colonial exhibition I wish I could read while we were there!) Expensive cafe in beautiful ambiance if you'd like have some tea or coffee or a bite to eat. Found it worthwhile to poke around for about 20 minutes and then we were on our way again!) There's a video on the first floor that highlights some of the buildings wonders with English subtitles.

    A green space in the urban sprawling city of Taipei. Pardon the pun. But really can't see the attraction to it. Maybe I am world weary?

    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.
