Skip It!This wall is actually a place you can skip on the list of places to visit. You will not miss much. It is just a brick wall with not much of anything on it. A plaque of that sort cannot even be found to explain the history of the world. This wall does have a lot of history, but it is not that obvious. You will have to search the internet to fully appreciate it. If you do not have enough time, this wall is definitely a place you can miss without any guilt.
Not really worth the effort, unless you are in the areaAgain, although this feature does make the guidebooks, it generally is featureless and quite unimpressive. There may be historical significance to the wall, but sadly, to the average visitor (that's me!), this doesn't really rate a long detour.
Nothing interestingJust a wall. Really nothing to watch. It possible watching this wall only from one side. Another side closed by the buildings.
More could be doneWithin walking distance from mrt station DongMen. As the name suggested, it’s a wall and nothing else. Before the wall is a small park with benches to rest those tired legs. However the absence of shades make the place unbearably hot on a sunny day. As it’s an important part of Taiwan history more could be done to educate the future generations of its existence. Perhaps historical photographs of the prison in its former glory could be displayed on site in a small memorial structure. Otherwise there’s really no point making your way here.

Wall Of CommemorationIt may just be a wall, but it is also a wall of significant historical value. It is the wall of the now defunct Taipei Prison, where many lives were needlessly lost, during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan during WW II. This wall honours those.
