One of the most famous tourist spot in Taipei is Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial hall. As thousands of people pay a visit here in a day. If you're in Taipei, I suggest you pay this a visit because aside from it's architectural beauty, it also let you understand the culture and history of Taiwan. Built in honor and memory of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, the former President of the Republic of China.
It was a rainy afternoon, although this place has less people than it's suppose to be, because of the bad weather that day i'd say there were less. But less does not mean few, It's so popular that even though there was lesser people that day it's still get to be crowded as we arrived. Luckily, we get to take decent picture of it. You know, i have this thing with astonishing architectures so I've got tons of pictures
This is not the memorial hall yet but this is part of the Chiang Kai-Shek as this welcomes you upon entering it.
There's a bit of a rain going on and also, as you can see, they are renovating the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial hall. There are still lots of people who pays visit with this weather. I can't imagine how many more would be there if it's sunny.
Inside, you can find the museum documenting Chiang's life and career. There's also an exhibit about Taiwan's history, pan-Chinese culture and history, and the ROC's development after moving to Taiwan.
Outside, just right besides the main hall,you can find a beautiful Garden, the National Concert Hall and the National Theater.
