Tranquil setting for late President's final resting place
Jan 2019 • Friends
The late President Chang Kai-shek is interred here. The setting very peaceful. After the old President's tomb was vandalized with spray paint, you can not longer get close to the tomb, but you can see a cross through the glass. The military honor guard changes on the hour from 9 am to 5 pm, it is well worth seeing. These days, there are also police roaming around. The mausoleum is Chiang's final resting place, he will not be returning to mainland China. The mausoleum is classed as an historic monument. Entry is gratis.

Nice Stroll in the Park
Oct 2018 • Family
On my way to La La Mountain to pick peaches, we stop by the Cihu Mausoleum to see the resting place of the late Chiang Kai-shek. Weather was cool and nice. The walk to the mausoleum was very easy and handicap-friendly. From the gate to the Mausoleum will take about 15 minutes. You will walk pass Cihu lake and see some black swans there. The highlight is the hourly change of guards. A good photo-op. Plenty of parking space if you rent a car.

3 to 4 hours of wakk

It is nice to spend the morning or afternoon to walk around the front or back lakes. Scenic and eat walk but you need to book in advance. There are limited entry quota per day. Plan your trip. It is the tombs of the father and son president of Chiang. If you like to learn a little history about the two presidents, this might be one option.

Temporary resting place of Chiang Kai-shek
Apr 2018 • Friends
Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek was ruler of the Republic of China in mainland China and Taiwan from 1928 - 1975. His mausoleum is relatively simple, because his remains were to be buried in mainland China when the Kuomintang (Nationalist Party) recovered the mainland. When China was weak, that seemed possible, if unlikely but now with China a world power few would give the idea much credit. The environment of the Cihu Mausoleum is very restful, and anyone with an interest in the history of China would benefit from a visit.

Dark history behind it
Jan 2018 • Family
Yes its a temple that keeps the body of former dictator of Taiwan, but there are a lot more to it, before it becomes what it is today, the location was a former secret military based , it was built to control military activities in Taiwan, especially against China, the former military base was built under the mountains through miles of tunnels, and the tunnels were built to be able to stand nuclear attack. Some part of these tunnels are now open to the public. The dictator spent his last days here, controlling the military activities and politics in Taiwan before his death.

The place is now popular with tourist from China.

Solemn But Sad Place To Witness....
Jan 2018 • Friends
Cihu is a beautiful lake with gorgeous view filled with swans. The walk around the beautiful lake is purely enjoyable and relax. The mausoleum is solemn as a great man lied there. The sadness, to me, come in when I witness all those status of the great man that were once erected all over Taiwan; and now being removed and move to the garden at the side of the lake. Sad!

Dignified, peaceful tribute to Chiang Kai Shek
Nov 2017 • Couples
I love history and so this, to me, was an important place to visit. We took a bus (501) from Zhongli which stopped right at the entry to the mausoleum. The first thing we noticed were all the statues of CKS that have been brought from all over Taiwan as the importance of CKS has been de-emphasised. These used to be at schools and important public places and have been gradually removed. Love him or hate him, CKS was a huge part of making Taiwan, ROC what it is today and much of the prosperity and freedoms the people there enjoy trace back to he and his family.
The mausoleum is set back in a peaceful place next to a lake. It is a beautiful setting. We arrived just before the changing of the guard and that seemed to add to the dignity of the place. We then went in a filed past the tomb. I expected that his wife would be there as well, but some online research shows she is buried in New York, USA

Serene, Peaceful Place
Jan 2017 • Friends
I have been to various mausoleums but I somehow like this place the best compared to Vietnam and China. The place is not stressful (with military officials etc.) but there is a gentle atmosphere of respect which I find very pleasant and tastefully done. If you have the chance, yes, pls come to this place.
