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

We enjoyed our visit to the Martyrs' Shrine - the shrine was built in honour of the war dead of the Republic of China. The temple and the grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The best part of our visit was the changing of the guards - occurs every hour. The timing and precision was spectacular - definitely time... More

If you're visiting Taipei, this is one place you should check out. I understand they have a changing of the guard although I didn't personally see it). You don't need a lot of time here, but it's certainly worth a visit.

Visited Martyrs' Shrine on 17/10 morning. A solemn place where it housed heroes who make contributions to the country. With the short descriptions along the wall around the shrine, I have a better understanding on the history of Taiwan and how much effort they have made to come this far. Definitely must see the change of guards parade. In fact,... More

It commemorates those who perished in China's revolutionary wars The temple is well maintained but most visitors go there to witness the changing of the guard. The guards' drill is quite spectacular, highly co-ordinated and a marvel to watch. The guards themselves are turned out sic and span.... More

Nice place to visit. Stick around for changing of the guards. A MUST SEE. Perfectly in unison. So perfect in fact you can see on the ground the route they have taken over time. Great place for pictures.
