Two men who made a nation

The two Chiangs - Generalisimo Chiang Kai-shek and his son, President Chiang Ching-kuo (the surname is also written as Jiang, though it is the same in Chinese) created modern Taiwan. The elder Chiang may have really believed that the Kuomintang (KMT) would retake mainland China, but his son concentrated on building a free and prosperous society in Taiwan. The cultural park won't please everyone, but it is quite pretty, and worth seeing. You don't have to support the KMT to appreciate it, it's part of Taiwan's history. Entry is gratis.

The place shown complexity of history of Taiwan and complexity of Taiwanese people and Taiwanese culture, strangely a temple built to celebrate , dedicate to the dictators of Taiwan, and protect the temple as a national importance location. Very difficult to understand the motivation behind it!

The temple nevertheless was well built in a good location.

Whatever your viewpoint on the Chiangs this attraction makes for an excellent half day trip. Extremely popular-apparently 3 million visitors a year since 2009. Definitely worth it.

Surreal scene of all the relocated statues from around Taiwan being placed in one area. Also great to appreciate the secrecy of the area that was out of bounds to ordinary Taiwanese for many, many years.

Read about Project National Glory before you go. It was a plan that KMT were plotting to retake the mainland in the late 1960's and it was planned and devised here.
