Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall:
The majestic hall towers over 25 hectares of landscaped gardens, graceful pavilions, and ponds. A statue of late President Chiang looks out over the city from the main building. An elegant Ming-style arch at the main entrance is flanked by two classical-style buildings, the National Theater and the National Concert Hall. The square between the buildings is a popular gathering place during festive occasions.
It is an excellent example of classical Ming dynasty architecture, dedicated to the fallen heroes of China’s wars. There is an hourly changing of the guard ceremony at the entrance which many people find interesting.
Traditional Taiwanese Temples:
There are a lot of traditional Taiwanese temples in Taipei City. Those places represented the centers of people’s religious activities. Meticulously designed and built, the faithful believers showed their respects to the Holy Gods. The years of smoke from incense has suffused within those temples to create an ethereal atmosphere.
National Palace Museum:
Taipei’s National Palace Museum houses the world’s largest collection of Chinese art and treasures. Most of the 620,000 art objects were part of the Chinese imperial collection that was brought to Taiwan for safe-keeping. The collection is too large to be displayed at one time. While many popular pieces remain on permanent display, other items are rotated regularly, making each visit unique.
It is a one-stop shopping place in Taipei for gift, jewelry, art, furniture, and many other inexpensive mementos.
