A top tourist destination and a must see destination for history buffs. The Memorial Hall built in the memory of Chiang Kai-shek, the leader of the ROC. The monument is majestic and impressive.Recommended for:

Set in a large park reminiscent of China's Tiananmen square, the CKS Memorial Hall is a great place to learn more about the early years of the establishment of Taiwan and the early government. It is great place to visit for history buffs and sightseers alike.Recommended for:

It's better in the early morning. I went there before 6am, and they were doing the flag ceremony. It was interesting to watch. Sometimes the locals practice the Tai-chi in the morning as well. I just saw a group of people dancing. One of the most picturesque places in Taipei.Recommended for:

Caught the changing of the guard on my second visit here & happy to know that the 89 stairs up were closed, we ha to suffer taking the elevator up. Also realized that there was a museum and air- conditioned hall under the memorial, which was closed on my first visit. This guard is just beginning hi 3 hour shift for a total of 3 a day. The red ropes are for you tourists that feel inclined to poke them.

Built to commemorate the life of Chiang Kai-shek, this is an impressive plaza. There is the main memorial hall at the end of a long plaza, and as you walk up to the memorial, you have the the Concert Hall on your left and the National Theater on your right. Just the center of the plaza is gorgeous with the beautiful architecture of these 3 buildings. Inside the memorial hall, you can see a display of artifacts from Chiang Kai-Shek's life, and photos from his presidency on the first floor. On the 4th floor is the huge statue of a smiling, seated Chiang Kai-Shek. Every hour or 2, they do the changing of the guard. The guards march through the 1st floor and up to the 4th floor, where they switch out.

Built to memorialize Chiang Kai-Shek and completed in 1980. The hall resembles the Lincoln memorial, with a statue of Chiang in the middle. There's a museum and library below the main hall and you can catch a great view of the National Theater and Concert Hall from the top of the steps.
