National Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall
This majestic Chinese modern style building is located on the east side of Taipei. The National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall was completed in 1972, and was built at the time of Dr. Sun’s 100th birthday in order to commemorate Dr. Sun and his achievements and beliefs.
After entering through the front door, visitors to the memorial hall will see a bronze statue of Dr. Sun—the tallest statue of Sun Yat-Sen in the world—standing in front of them in the 20-meter-high entry hall. During the day time, from 9 am to 5 pm, a ceremonial officer will lead guests and tourists in paying their respects to Dr. Sun’s statue prior to the hourly changing of the guard ceremony. Afterward, visitors can enjoy the ceremony performed by rotating honor guard personnel of the Republic of China.
The Sun Yat-sen History East Exhibition Room on the 1st floor showcases Dr. Sun’s lifetime achievements, and suggests at how pleased Dr. Sun would be if he could see his plan for the country realized in Taiwan. The Dr. Sun Yat-sen History West Exhibition Room employs the newest technology, software and historical research to present "Dr. Sun Yat-sen and Taiwan." The Chungshan National Gallery on the 2nd floor exhibits art works by master artists from Taiwan and overseas. The Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival has been held many times in the Auditorium.
The lush Zhongshan Park has long been a perfect spot for residents and tourists to relax and view the Taipei 101 building. So make sure to bring your camera with you when you visit the National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall.
