    This huge series of Monuments is a testament to the Megamania of dictator Chaing Kai-shek. The centerpiece is the CKS hall which is flanked by the National Theatre and National Concert hall. The park is accesed on on side by a massive gate.

    Also located at the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Park is the National Theater and National Concert Hall. Both buildings are tranditional chinese style and are beautiful to look at from outside. I have not been inside either building yet, but there are guided tours to both buildings on weekday afternoons.

    Within the grounds of the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial are the National Theatre and the Concert Hall. The exterior design of the National Theater and Concert Hall is based on the traditional Chinese styles. The design of the National Theatre is based on the model of Ta-ho Hall, which is ranked the highest among all Chinese palaces. The National Concert Hall, is based on the Bao-ho Hall, which is ranked next to Ta-ho Hall.

    On the grounds of the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial. Only a 10-15 min walk from Taipei Train Station.

    In the center of the city, near the CKS museum and the National Theatre, you will find magnificent gardens. Takd time and enjoy the peaceful stroll thru these lovely gardens.
