Great for photos!

Close to a subway, the Revolutionary Shrine is in a quiet, reverent part of the city. Lots of tourists and pigeons but makes for some excellent photography

This was our first stop on our tour of Taipei, it was a Monday and there were no crowds. Really enjoyed the changing of the guard.

Of course this is where people gather to watch the changing of the guards every hour. Start in the courtyard, and walk alongside or ahead of the guards while they march up towards the main shrine in the back. After the guard changes there, they march back up front to perform some drills and change guards at the gate. You... More

It is a very solemn place as it is place to remember those who have fallen during the 4 wars KMT revolutionaries and its army fought before they retreat to Taiwan. Most tourists were there to see the hourly guard exchange ceremony which took 20plus mins. To truely understand the 4 wars, one has to slowly go through the exhibits... More

Most people are here for the hourly changing of the guard ceremony. Take some time to read the hisorical plaques and personal stories of those commemorated here.

This place is not very big. It's really known for the changing of the guards. I believe that happens every hour, on the hour. Overall, it was a nice stop as it was close by the National Museum.

Another great visit to go alongside the other meaningful memorials to the leaders of Taiwan. You can enjoy the grounds in general or go the step further and read the information about the individuals. This spot does get frequented by tour groups but they were well spaced out when I visited (seemed like about an hour between each one I... More

Take the red line metro to Yuanshan Station. Either take a taxi or public bus. The main attraction is the 25mins changing of the guards at every hour. This is the best guard change ceremony as compared to CKS memorial hall or SYS memorial hall. After this visit, you can proceed to the Grand Hotel for you lunch/ dinner. This... More

I've been here twice and this time with my children. They enjoyed watching the guard changing ceremony very much. We took a taxi from the nearest MTR station and it's only a 5 mins ride.
