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.

Changing of the guard is the highlight of this attraction. Not much else to see unless you have a personal attachment. A couple of minute bus ride from the MTR station.
