When it comes to Taipei, the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall is one of the landmarks. The terrain is becoming a popular city park for the locals and a place to commemorate the former president of the Republic of China.
Chiang Kai-Shek followed the unfulfilled wishes of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen and strove to modernize the Republic of China. As leader of the Nationalist Party in the middle of the 20th century, he led the wars in the east and north of China and fought against the Japanese and the Communist Party of China. After his death on 5 April 1975, citizens proposed to found a memorial hall for this leader. The government decided to implement the idea of the architect Yang Zhao-Cheng and began construction in 1976. In 1980, the construction of the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall was completed, and the hall opened.
In addition to the memorial hall, there are two huge traditional Chinese palace-like buildings. They are the National Theater and the National Concert Hall. Also, the memorial park with its area of 250,000 square meters is also a paradise for animals and plants in the city of Taipei.
