Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, Taipei
(4.1/5 based on 4,200+ reviews on the web)
Surrounded by landscaped gardens and manicured walkways, Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall is dedicated to the country's former president and military leader. Better known as Jiang Zhongzheng in China, Chiang Kai-shek ruled China from Taiwan during the most of the "white terror" period from 1949 to 1987. A flight of 88 stairs--one for each year of Chiang's life--leads to the entrance of the white marble neo-classical palace. See a model of presidential office with a life-sized mannequin of Chiang and his two Cadillacs. The grandiose seated statue of the authoritarian leader in the main hall is always guarded by two soldiers, whose motionless postures make them look like statues coming alive every hour with the changing of the guard ceremony. Use our Taipei vacation trip planner to add Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall and other attractions to your Taipei vacation plans.

  • Hotel honor 蔣介石, Taiwan's President. Martyr's shrine as well as be of the guard every hour. You need to see 蔣介石 monument situated on a vast, there is elevator, but usually long climb down the stairs to. On the first floor had been anti-Japanese War Museum. Currently the appearance seen in the construction.

  • Easily accessible by MRT. Very educational for visitors. Displays are meaningful . The volunteers on site were very helpful in giving additional information. Don't miss the change of guards! 
  • very nice place place to visit, but during the time we visited some portion of memorial hall was covered of scaffolding.
