A wonderful site to visit & learn more about the history. Very easy to get to via MRT & because I went alone I decided to wonder around by myself without a guide.

The exhibition on the life of the Generalissimo is very interesting and different from what museum in mainland would tell you.

Beautiful grounds, neat little museum inside. I loved seeing his cadillac! Each room has a little podium where kids can rubber stamp a paper with various stamps: Chiang's head, some chinese characters, etc. They enjoyed having something to do besides walk around.

This memorial is incredible. It is huge! And it sits on nice grounds. If you are lucky, you can see the changing of the guards. There is a nice view from the top as well.

Every hour you can see guard change which took more than 15-20 min. I gave up watching the ceremony owing to too many people and high temperature which made all if us totally sweaty. The gates are must to seem if you can read the letters it would be interesting

We were in a hurry to reach airport and could not visit inside but the exterior and the premises are well maintained and made us think to visit the memorial at the next possible opportunity.
