Interesting things to see
Aug 2021
Jiantan Park is conveniently located near the Jiantan MRT Station on Tamshi-Xinyi (Red) line, which is the best stop for the Shihlin Market, Taipei's most popular night market. It also near the Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine and Ming Chuan University. One other feature is the Taiyuan 500 Martyrs Tombs. The station catches your attention, it won an award for its architecture; it resembles a dragon boats. The station has good access to Yuanshan Mountain and the Grand Hotel.

Park has significant points of interest
Mar 2021
Jiantan Park hosts the two-level Jiantan MRT Station, which is shaped like a dragon boat. The design won the 19th annual Taiwan architectural award in 1997. The station is on the Tamshui-Xinyi Red) line. It is the most convenient station for the Shihlin Night Market, and sees heavy traffic in the evening. The park also hosts the National Revolutionary Martyrs Shrine, and Ming Chuan University. In the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945) the adjoining railway station gave access to the Taiwan Grand Shrine, the island's most significant Shinto shrine which was later displaced by the Grand Hotel.

Goo exercise and great views of the city
Dec 2018 • Solo
Walk on from the Martyrs Shrine and then make your way right up the hill - the trails are reasonably well marked and half way up the south side of the hill there are all these small Karaoke cabins where people hire them and come to sing.

Further up is a temple and I was lucky enough to see the "choir" - all old ladies - singing their chants

You get some super views of down town Taipei and lots of local people enjoying the walking and exercise.

You can also walk on to the very dramatic and well named "Grand Hotel".

Located at the base ov Jiantan mountain so can't miss it if you choose to do the hike. Nothing special about it. Not really anything to say
