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.

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,...

You have to get there before the start of the changing of the National Guards. There are certain times within the day where the National Guards will march from one end to other, about 100m where they display with precision each executed moves with the ceremonial rifles. Very interesting and entertaining. Dont miss the changing of guards!

A quiet place as should be. A Sanctuary for the Martyrs. Here you would not be disturbed by the noisy tourists from C. The changing of the guards is impressive ( similar to the Chang Kai Sek Memorial). It occur every hour at the hour.

We stopped over on our day tour and very impressed with the temple style buildings, saw the changing of the guard and read about the history of the various people and wars over the years. The rest rooms where very clean. I enjoyed my visit to Taipei.

Nothing much to see. The main gate under renovation. Only sample of 5 soldiers marching up and down compared with a platoon of soldiers I seen last year. The inner hall seems a bit gloomy and eerie.
