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.

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.

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.

Great place to learn of the post war history of Taiwan and even the PRC. Great photos and bric a brac. Excellent environment. Close to many other attractions such as the Grand Hotel, Yangminshan and the National Museum. Easily a day in the area. easy to get around and well worth starting a taipei day there.

The guard changing ceremony seems to take about 1/2 hour, and comprises 2 parts - 2 guards at the shrine itself and 2 at the gateway near the road. The discipline and precision of the young soldiers is most impressive. Entry into and photography of the large shrine building itself, but there are plenty of displays in the surrounding arcades,...
