  • This chapel is located in a university campus in Taichung. It’s a little tricky to find as you have to go into the campus and follow signs to get there. Architecturally, it’s beautiful for sure, at least from the outside. I was not able to go inside. outside on the lawn are many students relaxing, studying, taking picture, or eating. Even a few stray dogs were just sleeping on the lawn in the sun. This location comes up as a landmark in Taichung in a google search, but unless you’re really into architecture or Christianity, this place is probably a spot you could skip. Honestly just an other building. Not much to it other than its unique shape and design. Even around the university, not much going on. Just students going to and from classes. If in Taichung again, I definitely would not visit again. Pretty, but also pretty boring.
  • The most famous landmark of the University, Luce Memorial Chapel always attracts a trendy crowd hoping to capture its elegance on camera! Designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei 貝聿銘, the chapel resemble a folded praying hands, is also the spiritual center of the University holding service every Sunday at 10AM.
