This majestic shrine honors the Republic of China's war dead. Marvel at the soldiers' precision at the changing of the guard ceremony that occurs every hour.

The place itself is well-maintained and serene. The details of the site are quite intricate and could be of interest to those with a keen eye on architectural details.

The changing of the guard is great, and the dedication in all weathers is something to see. It would be best to avoid the hottest part of the day if you going in summer, as it can be very hot.

The real highlight here is the changing of the guard. People will line up well ahead in order to get a good photo op. Interesting to note the walkway is worn from the soldiers boots with metal plates to and from the shrine. You can not actually get into the shrine, but can stand in one of the many open... More

The people in Taiwan are proud of their history. Why not, when their small population, which has grown from the remnants of the non-communist Chinese forces have faced off against the might of China since the 1940's and are separated by only a narrow strait. The "2 China's" now get on better with travel and trade between them but mainland... More

Similar as CKS memorial hall! You can have a look if you are on the way back to the city. If you are not familiar with the history of Republic of China, it’s kind dull to go there. But if you are interested in the historical section, it will be nice to learn some new knowledge. Honour guard march is... More

The Shrine is worth visiting. I'd like the changing guards ceremony. We took a cab from Yuanshan Station, and paid only TWD100.

A short walk from the Grand Hotel. The Changing of the Guard is what most people go to see here; tour buses will literally pull up and let people off and then pull up again and people will get on again the minute the changing of the guard is over. The changing of the guard starts at the front gate... More

I got there just at the right time, changing of the guards. It was quite a long military presentation. Worth watching.

I luckily timed my visit here when they started the Changing of the Guard ceremony where 5 soldiers march down in a slow formal fashion (on a super hot day, in my instance), up a couple sets of stairs and into the main memorial hall. There's little to the overall grounds, but a great recognition. Try to time your visit... More

This was really nice and tranquil to visit. The forest backdrop adds to the beauty of these buildings. It's quiet and relaxing albeit with traffic right outside. Sadly I missed the change of the guard due to time but I would recommend being able to see it.
