Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall
Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall was built to commemorate late president Chiang Kai-shek. Surrounded by a large Chinese-style park and a huge plaza, the iconic hall has white marble walls and a roof with blue glazed tiles. On the three floors inside, visitors can see a large bronze statue of a sitting Chiang Kai-shek and check out the exhibition area with historic documents, photographs, and films. On two sides of the large plaza in front of the memorial hall are the National Theater and the National Concert Hall, two great venues for the performing arts regularly featuring famous artists from Taiwan and abroad.
This 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.
National Palace Museum
Often named as one of the four greatest museums in the world, the National Palace Museum not only preserves century-old art and culture but also engages in cultural exchange with foreign museums to become a modern and "fashionable" museum. The museum collection consists of more than 600,000 court treasures from the Song, Yuan, Ming, and Qing Dynasties. Among the most popular artifacts are the Jadeite Cabbage and Meat-Shaped Stone, both always drawing large crowds.
Traditional Taiwanese Temple
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, and lots of smoke from incense suffused within those temples.
