This majestic shrine honors the Republic of China's war dead. Marvel at the soldiers' precision at the changing of the guard ceremony that occurs every hour.

If you have an hour to spare and don't want to spend money, the Martyr's Shrine is a good option. This site is not very close to an MRT station so a taxi would probably be best. You may be able to walk here within...More

A quiet & beautiful place where you can see guard changing very closely, there is no barrier between you & the guards. Please go there at 10am & prepare your camera.

It is better to understand the history of the R.O.C (Republic of China) and their sacrifices before visiting. Get intrigued by its marvelous architecture while waiting for the Guard-changing ceremony. During a cool day, it is quite comfortable to walk from Taipei Fine Arts Museum....More

One should try to visit the Martyrs' Shrine when in Taipei in order to better understand and appreciate history. Atmosphere is solemn and there is a change of guard around 12pm.

The buildings have a nice architecture. Also the garden between them is nicely maintained. Especially the huge doors are a great sight. Every hour the guards changes, and they have a performance of about 5 minutes. It's nice to look at and prolongs your stay....More

It looks like a forbidden city in Beijing. Its Chinese styled building inside and outside the premise is very spectacular

Another beautiful building in Taipei, very well maintained with gardens and flowers outside. If you arrive on the hour you can see the changing of the guard which is quite a performance and takes about 15 minutes over all.

The Martyr's Shrine in Taipei is worth a visit just to see the changing of the guards, all done to precision timing.
