Owner description: 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.

This shrine marks an incredibly sad moment of marital law in the nation's history, with the massacre of citizens.

Built on a green hillside in 1969, the impressive Taipei Martyrs Shrine was architecturally inspired by the Hall of Supreme Harmony in Beijing's Forbidden City. The shrine is dedicated to the 390,000 soldiers killed in the service of their country during the War of Resistance against Japan and the civil war between the Chinese Republican and communist forces.
A major attraction at the Taipei Martyrs' Shrine is the hourly ceremony for the changing of the honor guard in front of the main gate. This happens daily between 09:00 am and 05:00 pm, with the exception of certain public holidays.

They have a changing of guards every hour. A small area is cordoned off, tourists & visitors are allowed to stand around this area to watch 4 guards exchanging their duties with precision marching which was interesting.

Martyr’s shrine in Taipei’s Zhongshan district, is dedicated to war causalities. It is a kind of replica of Beijing forbidden city. Yeah, for those who like these kinds of memorials, it is an interesting place, the guards are OK, copies of those at the Chiang Kai-shek memorial.
