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.
