Chiang Kaishek Memorial

The buildings with the most red columns

The most convenient way to visit this Memorial is to take the MRT to the Chiang Kaishek Memorial station. After visiting Pitan we decided to hop off the MRT to visit this memorial before heading home. This is a very impressive compound. There is a large statue of Chiang Kaishek inside the main building. This place sure reminds of me Washinghton D.C's Lincoln Memorial. The architecture was wonderful with the orange tiled roof and red columns. It was a shame that prior to coming to Taipei I could not find a suitable performance at either the National Concert Hall or National Theatre. Perhaps next time we will be able to attend a performance. Nevertheless we were treated by three military troops practicing throwing their guns in the air.
