This hall is as old as I am.. hehehe.. since it was built in 1975
The Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall is a national monument dedicated to Taiwan's founding father, Generalissimo Chiang Kai Shek. To reach the main hall of the building, you will need to climb 89 steps first. These steps are meant to represent the age when Chiang Kai Shek passed on.
At the main hall, you can marvel at the huge statue of the man. Thereafter, head to the first floor, where you'll find a museum showing exhibits of Chiang's life, his marriage and of course, his career. You can even find a life size replica of him sitting in his office.
The highlight is the hourly changing of the guards. which is a performance of sheer military discipline and pomp. Overall, a must-go place when you are in Taipei.
Beautiful architecture. .. I just love these Chinese architecture that reminds me of imperial China….heheh
I am kinda sad at this point because I did take a lot of photos here but only have this to share because my memory card from my DSLR camera went missing on my way home from Taipei to KL. Else I would have been sharing a lot of other pictures from the surroundings which were pretty massive and impressive. Gorgeous halls and gardens..
