The Shine is so solemn place, and the view is very nice with main colour of red, white and gold. I liked much also the group demonstration by the securities.

Of course, you can always take a taxi. But we use the convenient MRT all around Taipei. We went to Dazhi MRT Station then took bus #208. It's a short walk to the entrance since the bus isn't allowed to stop directly in front. The changing of the guards ceremony is held every hour from 9AM with the last one... More

Compared to other public tourist attractions, you could sense there's something very different about the place. Quiet and peaceful, this place is served to honor those who fought bravely in wars. You don't even need to remind others to keep quiet because everyone respects the place a lot. Even though there isn't much to see (except the exciting moments during... More

It is situated near Grand Hotel. There is Guard ceremony at 10 am which lasts for about 30 mins. The guards come marching from the hall to the main entrance. People line up on the sides to watch the ceremony.

Really enjoyed my visit to this place. Peaceful grounds, not too many tourists, and a sense of reverence missing from e.g. Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall. The outer wall surrounding the hall in the back area is an exhibit containing a series of placards detailing the Chinese fight for independence to whose dead the site is dedicated. The info is...

I loved it because I am a great fan of history but for most people it would qualify for a short visit to take pictures and see the change of the guard on the hour every hour. Some inscriptions are also only in Mandarin but on the whole it was time well spent.

You can't go there by MRT but you have to take the bus. I thought it would be more impressive. Changing the guards is good to see.

As a history aficionda of wars, this place is a must see. The location is beautiful and serene, but the history of the men honored at this memorial is even more impressive.

This beautiful memorial shrine was completed in 1969 to commemerate the war dead of the ROC. It's worth a visit to see the changing of the guard ceremony held at the top of every hour. Perfect timing and precision; impressive.

It was an interesting and a attractive event when you witnessed the change of guards ceremonial. The guards are personnel pre selected with the right size, height and weight. Each guards are to stand for one hour without any movement. This is a recommended site, especially to witness the change of hourly guards ceremony.
