The shrine honours the fallen war heroes from 1911-1949 and honour them they do in a grand way. The grounds themselves are large scale with guards positioned at the entrance and at the main building / monument. These guards certainly capture the attention as they...More

The shrine provides a glimpse of Taiwan's history and military foundation. Changing of the guard is worth waiting for, very usa style of military ceremony in an Asian setting.

A memorial to soldiers fallen on the way to the creation of Taiwan. There is an hourly changing of the guard ceremony. Best visited when there is no rain as the way from the gate to the shrine is fairly long.

This Place is dedicated to the fallen soldier who fought for the country. Here you can witness the changing guard for every hour. Just manage your time here because there is not much to see here and public transportation sometimes not frequent.

The martyr's shrine is a lovely place on the outskirts of the city dedicated to people who have given their lives for the country.

Megalomanic shrine built in honor of hundred of thousands killed on the different battles of Shan Kai Chek and the oponents to build "his" China which he failed to do. The change of the guard every hour reminds us other places should not be mentioned.

Is good place to visit if you have enough time. This is especially for the change of guard performance which is quite different from other that you could see at other places in Taipei.
