Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall… A monument to the hero

Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, a monument to Chiang Kai-shek who was the leader of the Republic of China for 47 years, is one of the Taiwan landmarks or tourist attractions.

Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall is located in a 240,000 square meter park called “Liberty Square”. From the main entrance, while walking to the memorial hall, you will see National Theater and the National Concert Hall. Along the way, you can expect to see not only tourists, but also Taiwanese people here. It seems like this park is an open public space for local.
