#10 of 53 in Parks in Taipei
The Taipei Metro Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall Station is located in the Zhongzheng District of Taipei, Taiwan. It is a transfer station for Line 2 and Line 3. While the memorial for which the station is named was embroiled in a naming dispute, the name of the station has remained unchanged.Station overviewThe station is a three-level, underground structure with two island platforms and seven exits. The two platforms are stacked on top of one another, allowing for cross-platform interchange between Line 2 and Line 3. The washrooms are outside the entrance area. The station is situated under Roosevelt Road, between Nanhai Road, Linsen South Road, and Aiguo East Road.From November 15, 2014, the station became a transfer station with the Songshan-Xindian Line. It is also a planned terminus for the Wanda-Shulin Line.Public artThe station is home to several public art pieces. By the escalators connecting the two platform levels, a piece titled "Metamorphosis" displays a holographic flight trajectory of a paper plane. Along some of the entrance hallways, "Musical Skies" shows light boxes with images clouds in a blue sky. On the upper platform in "Platform, Stage", elements from Taiwanese folk arts and Chinese opera have been transformed into abstract elements and minimized into two curtains of lines and flat surfaces.

  • A historical landmark in Taipei full of history, galleries, and architecture. Visiting at day or during the evening the impact of the light create impressive lines on the building. Invited artist like Mr. Chiang Long-Fang provide the creative message on the gallery walls as a demonstration of the Taiwanese culture. A place that must be check-in on your list during your visit to Taipei.
  • The gardens are nice and tranquil place to walk around. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. The monument is interesting and the exhibits are nice also. In the summer there is computer controlled water fountain next to one of the theaters, it's fun to take kids and play in the water. Just bring extra clothes.
  • Critical to bring umbrella, sunscreen and water, if you are planning to go on a relatively hot day or during the summer. Beware of long walks because the place is very spacious and the memorial hall is humongous compared to how the picture looks (I got deceived by the pictures until I saw it infront of my eyes. *The stairs is no joke especially when you walk a few miles or so to reach there.) Overall, an amazing experience with the real life soldiers that stood still WITHOUT BLINKING FOR HOURS. I am indeed impressed and feel quite scared when I saw that the soldier is not blinking and thought that he was a statue but no, he isn't.
  • This beautiful landmark and national monument is a popular tourist attraction. At the time of our visit (Dec 2017), the memorial hall was undergoing a renovation, thus the dark facade in my photos. Visitors are treated to a large open square, and beautiful gardens and architecture. There are tranquil ponds and small gardens surrounding the square.
  • Architecture, history, art and nature mix to give quite a memorable experience. Be prepared to find young students practicing some group dancing late in the evening. Beautiful at night time. I wasn’t able to try it because there was some annual painting going on, but there’s a cool sound effect you can do between the two buildings passing the main entrance.
