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.

Visited this place during a recent stay in Taipei, one of 2 "museums" that I visited, the other being the Taipei Armed Forces Museum. Getting here was quite easy, we took the metro to Jian Dan Station and just hailed a taxi, took us less than 100 NTD (Around 4 - 5 SGD). You definitely do not need to book... More

I was so impressed with the changing ceremony of the guards. It is held on every hour and takes about thirty minuts. The guards are motionless while watching the gate and the shrine palace. I was lucky because there were not so many tourists at that time and I could see them marching and doing performance with their guns well... More

It's a shrine dedicated to the warrior and hero. I'm not really fancy of the history so I didn't find any interesting point in this shrine, not much to see.

This building is on every tour, so you will likely see it. It is worth a quick visit, but the crowds were unreal for the changing of the guard, which was okay, but not worth fighting the crowds for.

Incredible place but it's agonizing to watch the changing of the guard especially on a day like we visited which was about 35°. The precision of the guards was perfect. Unfortunately you can't go inside so watching the guards change is all you can do. Takes about half an hour.

We visited this site in time to view the buildings prior to the Changing of the Guard, which occurs every hour after they have stood motionless for that period. Initially we could freely view all of the site and buildings, but in preparation for the ceremony, we were asked to vacate some of the areas and view from the side.... More

This was more or less like Chiang kai Sheks square… the main gate and the Shrine (colours). simply beautiful!!but a quick passby only!! This place has loads of history to it and it its current practises. It’s a very nice place for photography and also to watch the ceremonial changing of the guards. I must mention the guards are so...

Lucky that i was able to make it in time for the closing ceremony. The view of the mountainside is just so beautiful you wont think youre still in the city.

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 highlight of the trip would definitely be the changing of the guard. Be careful as well when taking photo with one as you wouldn't want to incite a reaction from... More

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.
