The Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall is a famous monument landmark in memory of Chiang Kai-Shek, the former President of the Republic of China (Taiwan). It is the most visited attraction by foreign tourists as Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall is situated in Zhongzheng District, in the heart of Taipei city of Taiwan.

The architecture of Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall is inspired by Tiantan in Beijing. The roofs are decorated with deep-blue glass representing the sky and sun. It is a great place to enjoy the stroll and beautiful scenery at the memorial which is surrounded by a beautiful Chinese-style garden (planted with flowers, pond, various plants etc.), National Theater and National Concert Hall. As such, the overall colour concept of blue, white and red represents the National Flag and the spirit of freedom, equality and brotherhood. 

A tour at Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall will not be completed without watching the ceremony of changing guards at the memorial hall, which takes place every hour from 9am to 6pm every day.
