It was a highlight of our trip to watch the changing of the guard. Don't miss it and get there early with your camera to watch this spectacular performance.

CKS Memorial is set in a beautiful park with carp ponds, lots of greenery and plenty of open space. The Changing of the Guard, every hour, on the hour, is recommended viewing but be careful not to be fully inside the hall in the middle of summer as it can be very hot and you will not be allowed to...

An interesting piece of architecture, and nice grounds to explore outside. When we visited there were a couple of very good art exhibitions inside the hall. We also saw the changing of the guards - a great display (on the hour, every hour). Would recommend!

You can't miss this place when you are visiting Taiwan. It maybe located in the city center,but with no doubt you can find peace here. I write more in Chinese on my blog, if you are interested, you can pay it a visit. https://sziaworld.wordpress.com/2015/01/16/%E5%8F%B0%E5%8C%97-%E4%B8%AD%E6%AD%A3%E7%B4%80%E5%BF%B5%E5%A0%82/#more-23

Wasn't sure what to expect, but was quite impressed with the experience. Came out at the Metro station, walked across the square - which is quite majestic. The main doors are being repaired so had to enter by the side doors, then grabbed a lift up to level 4 just in time to see the 4pm changing of the guards.... More

The Memorial Hall is quite a sight to take in upon arrival. It juts up toward the sky and there are a number of steps to walk if you are up for it. The history behind Chiang Kai-Shek was very interesting and the hall is definitely worth a visit.

* Make sure you see the changing of the guard! Outstanding performance!!!! * Changing of the guard is rather long - don't film it all :) * Beautiful space and grounds * In a small back corner some local children were playing - this was wonderful to see the grounds in use, like a park or playground.

The entire plaza is neat, but the Memorial hall is the best, with a history exhibit based on the rise of Chaing (and Taiwan.) The changing of the guard was ok, but don't stress if you miss it.
