The square is beautiful, and has striking colors. A must see if you are wanting photographs of amazing images. The changing of the guard is great, and entertaining. On the grounds there is also a rare bird with people stationed there waiting all day with special camera equipment. Enjoy! ExploreTraveler.com

We ended up at the Shrine during a private tour of the Taipei area. The Shrine is a beautiful place to see while traveling around the city.

This is by far the best place to see Taiwan's changing of guards, simply because of the expanse of the place. It takes place every hour so be sure to get there at the right time (15 minutes before). As with other shrines or memorials, silence is always appreciated. The tablets of thousands of names are also another thing to... More

A nice shrine to see but make sure your visit coincides with a changing of the guard which is most impressive

If you like to stand and watch changing of the guards then this and the one at the Chiang Kei Shek Memorial Hall are the ones to see. Good precision but slow. The buildings though are very interesting to see. We caught the metro from close to the Chiang Kei Shek area to a stop where we were told to... More

Most visitors and continuous bus load of tourists visit this location just for the changing of guards. Changing of guards occurs at the main entrance and at the hall further down, where the guards marches to and fro between this 2 places each time. However if it rains or drizzles, there won't be a full march between the 2 locations.... More

The shrine is gorgeous to look at but the visit does not take a lot of time as it is not overly large. Based on a building in the Forbidden City in Beijing the building is impressively beautiful though.

We arrived just in time for the changing of guards, not as elegant and as many people as the one in London but was a beautiful rendition just the same. The place is another showcase of old Chinese architecture and a lovely place for photo shoot with the glaring and dominant red posts, orange roofs, yellow and gold ornaments and... More
