Am moved by the history. Am awed by the structure. Impressive. Definitely worth a visit to understand Taiwan's history. There is a museum at the basement which outlined the history, background and journey. Catch the change of guards at the top of the hour. Be respectful. No flash and be polite.

This park and its structures are well worth a visit. The sheer enormity is awe inspiring; the gardens are beautiful and the arches and buildings are not to be missed. On the hour every day is a changing of the guards, which is also well worth planning to see. Interesting to see such an insperational monument to the memory of... More

It wasn't completely easy to find the attraction from the CKS metro station. A friendly local pointed me in the right direction and there it was! On the return, I asked at the CKS Memorial Hall information counter for directions to the metro.

Chiang Kai-Shek was regarded as one of the worst human rights violators in 20th century world history. He salughtered millions of Chinese before his defeat by Communist China. After his escape to Taiwan he murdered thousands of Taiwanese as well, yet he has been enshrined by the ruling KMT party of Taiwan ever since his death. It is such an... More

A beautiful spacious area, we'll laid out. We should've spent more time there rather than the National Museum.

I love the lines and proportions of this monument, as well as the freespace around it. Inside there is what amounts to a free museum about CKS's life. I wish I had read up about him a bit more in advance. I suggest you to do before visiting.

Only the ceremony of the guards when they change shift every hourly (lasted about 15 mins) is slightly more unique. Other than that, nothing much interesting.
