Taipei Zhongshan Hall, Zhongzheng District

2.9
An important historic site built to mark the ascension of the Japanese Emperor Hirohito, Taipei Zhongshan Hall originally functioned as the city hall. The formal ceremony of the Japanese surrender of Taiwan to China in 1945 happened here, and afterward it served as the official meeting place of the ROC National Assembly and the venue of formal inauguration ceremonies. Major official gatherings (welcoming foreign diplomats) have always taken place here. Currently, the hall's several auditoriums host music and dance performances, ceremonies, and art exhibitions. You can attend one of these or simply explore the inside of the building at any time, but do be informed about the events before visiting. Also note that the staff speaks mainly Chinese.
