This shrine is set against the backdrop of the hills. It is a beautiful place, very moving and we'll worth the visit.
Part of area was under reconstruction so we're only able to see part of it. The majority of the tourists were taking pictures of the guards.
The place is like Arlington National Cemetary in the U.S., but at a smaller scale with only wooden gravestone. Visitors can learn those who sacrificed their life for the Chinese revolution.
Again, one of the great places to see in Taipei. We unfortunately arrived on a very rainy day, plus the shrine was being restored, so lots of construction and we could not see the shrine in all its glory.
This scenic monument to Taiwan's dead, is a great place to visit, see the changing of the guard, and peek around the memorial building. It's a great place for photographs to capture the traditional essence of Taiwanese culture.
Not much to come here for at this time of year as the buldings were barricaded and covered with shadecloth. Watched the changing of the guards which was a slow slow motion march up and down a paraded line with lots of clicking of boots and rifles. Interesting enough but not very exciting
If you happen to be heading down to Tamsui / Danshui the Martyr's shrine is in the heart of all the other sights in the area, It is really peaceful up there & the "Peace Park" across the road is a nice place to chill.
The Martyrs' Shrine is beautifully laid out & speaks very highly of the regard that the Taiwanese people have for their Martyrs'. But what was most amazing were the two Guards,at the entrance of the Shrine,who DO NOT BLINK THEIR EYE-LIDS FOR the 1-Hour that they on Duty . Amazing & Astonishing !!
