National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine information
This large shrine marks the memory of almost 400,000 soldiers who died for the ROC (mostly within China). The bulky complex, built in 1969, is typical of the northern 'palace style' architecture popularised during Chiang Kai-shek's reign. The hourly changing of the guards is a popular attraction, especially with Japanese tourists. It takes almost 20 minutes for the white-clad soldiers to march from the gate to their posts in front of the memorial, giving plenty of time to get a good shot.
Walk (15 minutes) or grab a YouBike from Dazhi station, else take a taxi either from Dazhi or Jiantan MRT stations.
