I'm so glad that I stopped here after visiting the Grand Hotel. This was nearby and I'd read that it was worth seeing the changing of the guard. It's definitely true. I got there just at noon and they had already started. Overall, the process...More

This Shrine is one to research before going so that you have an understanding of its history. The setting is beautiful and the changing of the guard is wonderful to see.

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.

A shrine to Taiwan's war dead that doesn't take long to visit. Worth visiting but do yourself a favor and read some about the history of the country before you visit. The crowd pleaser is the changing of the guard and the crisp drill and...More

After having seen the changing of the guards at the Chiang Kai-Shek memorial, we didn't rush to see the same thing here even if the choreography is impressive. It is touching to see how this homage to Taiwan's heroes is presented like a temple, a...More

I visited this place right as the guards were changing. It is a long process as they walk (very slowly) from the entrance gate, to the shrine and back again. You can follow them and take photos along the way. At the shrine, they stop...More
