Definitely a must when visiting Taipei. Maybe not the greatest architecture but still very impressive place with huge memorial hall.

So huge! Should be seen during the day but also during the night, when it is even more beautiful. I didn't expect that.

Yes, it is patterned after the Lincoln Memorial. It's certainly worth a visit. The most interesting thing about it is that the Taiwanese do not like Chiang Kai-Shek. The Memorial was built by his son. CK-S always wanted to return to China and did not further Taiwan in any way. His son, Chiang Ching-kuo is the revered one, who began... More

This reminded me of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, and it's our first stop before going to Taipei 101. I was impressed with the layout of it, we got to witness (in other tourists' phones) the changing of the guard, and took a picture of Chiang Kai-Shek inside. The surrounding areas were beautifully landscaped.

Omg is all I can say. This area has the hall which is free of charge. The amount of detail that has gone into this building is amazing. It's massive. Every hour you can watch the changing of the guard which is a fantastic experience. It sent shivers down my spine. Underneath the shrine is a museum with lots of... More

A-must-visit place in taipei (taiwan) if you love history. it is located in the heart of Taipei City. Outside the gate of Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, there are also guards with performance at 1pm. With the colors of blue, white and red it represent the National Flag and the spirit of freedom and equality.

It's in the list of must-visit places in Taipei. Worth a visit if it's your first time in Taipei. Soak up the atmosphere and history.

An amazing “Memorial Hall” filled with history of the past till present day Taiwan. We can see many collections of exhibits of written articles, photographs, pictures, furniture’s, cars, medals and more. History is truly important for the education and culture of the new Taiwan. We have had a added surprise – a glimpse of the “Changing of Guards” – outstanding!... More

Impromptu decision to visit the CKS Memorial Hall and did not regret one bit. Because it was last minute, we didn't know the changing of guards parade happens every hour and missed it. Although there isn't much to do except photo-taking, I was blown away by the magnificent architecture. If you're in Taipei, do add this in your itineraries! It... More
