Taipei Taiwan

We had a late start as we were quite tired from our pre-wedding photography on the previous day.

We went to Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall (中正纪念堂).   The hall is designed to resemble the Taiwanese flag, using only blue  and white as its color combination.  The blue tiles represent the blue sky, the white walls represent the white sun, and with a flower bed of red flowers, the three colors of blue, white and red echoes the flag.

 

The memorial hall is built inside a 240,000 square meter park , with the Liberty Square (自由廣場) as its main entrance.

When you enter through this main entrance, you will find yourself between the National Theatre and National Concert Hall.

As you walk towards the memorial hall, there’s a  floor directory before you walk up 89 flights of stairs.  Or, you can take the easy way out and take the elevator at the side !

 

As you reach the memorial hall, bronze statue of Mr Chiang and his guards will be waiting for you. Dont miss the change of guards ceremony that takes place every hour. 

Elaborate ceiling.

Jie Shi Exhibition hall on the first floor.

How to get there: Take MRT to Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall on Danshui Line. Exit 5.
