National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine, Taipei
(4/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Observe the hourly changing of the guard ceremony at the impressive National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine, a palace-like complex built in 1969 to commemorate deaths of nearly 400,000 soldiers, who perished serving the Republic of China against the Japanese Imperial Army and during the Civil War from 1911 to 1958. With most of the victims born in mainland China, the shrine was inspired by Beijing’s Forbidden City, and was also the funeral site of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek’s son. Located on the scenic Mount Ching, overseeing the Keelung River, the shrine makes a popular tourist spot, lying within walking distance of Dazhi station on the Taipei metro.

  • Happened around 13:00 arrival, change of Rite time were from the beginning or at the end I will url\n-was regarded as was. And was impressed by the respect, is so gone! Yasukuni Shrine in Japan that tried to go without homework and audience focused. 208-the Ambassador Hotel (hotel guest) one from the street behind the bus have many buses go. Return the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, Lungshan Chofu faces different bedding

  • 忠烈祠其實應該是個緬懷的地方,但很可惜,由於台灣的儀隊交接換班過程太過好看,每到整點這個儀式變成了一種表演,最後,該被注目的先烈反而成了幫襯的配角。個人覺得有點可惜。
