The place is bright and looks regal with the huge buildings with beautiful colors filling it and adorned with some really amazing works. I loved the whole structure of this shrine that is a dedication to the martyrs. The huge space makes it easier to see the guard changing ceremony even midst the crowds. It usually comes along with all... More

Invokes a real sense of national pride, and watching the soldiers march during their parade was really cool.

A quiet formal garden honoring martyrs. A good stop for a city tour, in the more modern northern section of the city.

The building is another colorful reproduction of traditional architecture. It isn't that interesting. The hourly changing of the guards is entertaining.

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
