This majestic shrine honors the Republic of China's war dead. Marvel at the soldiers' precision at the changing of the guard ceremony that occurs every hour.

Such a beautiful place. And literally the only place we felt like we had to ourselves in all our time in Taipei. Take a walk around the shrine feeling the breeze, admiring the classic architecture, and reading all the plaques about Taiwan's past. You should read the rules in the front before entering - otherwise the guard will remind you... More

I loved the changing of the guards and the contrast in stories from that of mainland China. There is a lot to see here I would certainly include this in any trip to Taipei!

This is an interesting building and worth a visit and there is a lot to learn about Taiwan's history from such a visit.The architecture is different and worth seeing.

This Shrine is certainly worthy of a visit as there are many good displays and there is much to learn about Taiwan's history. Come early when it is still quiet and solemn.

Most visited for the changing of the guard, which is, to give credit where due, quite impressive. Otherwise, it becomes just another shrine to view, and a relatively bland one at that, although the architecture is certainly something to admire.

We’d seen the changing of the guard at Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall and the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall. This one is a bit more impressive since the guards and entourage march the entire length of the exhibit – from the entry to the shrine itself. The Shrine has a very large set of grounds where you can see... More

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
