Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, Zhongzheng District

#2 of 3,848 in Things to do in Taiwan
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.

  • I would definitely recommend this place. If you have a child, you can also talk about Taiwanese history. The guard was very nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

  • This is a must for all travellers to Taipei. The history is great and the feats of he and Dr SunYat Sen still astound me. The changing of the guards is worth a look and the opening of the Hall at 9.00...  more »

  • If you get there before 9 (when the doors open) you'll have a great opportunity to get inside right when the doors open to see the changing of the guard. What a cool experience! You can see the memorial in addition to the concert and ball hall across the yard.
  • Good view, good architectural design of the museum and historical place in Taiwan where you can learn different things about their famous leader, Chiang Kai Shek. You will also have a chance to witness the notable switching of guards depending on the time of your trip (not really sure what is the frequency of it). Overall, this place is awesome.
