Oh yes, I was back in Taiwan! And this time, it was a family trip. I got to see more sights outside of Taipei but still visited famous sights around it. One such famous spot is the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall. And yes, it was one gloomy visit.
I am unsure what ceremony was going on but the rain didn’t stop them from fulfilling this. I watched it from afar and found it quite peaceful and inspiring. Most of the visitors had their eyes on them that time. I wish I could’ve taken a top view as it seemed they were in some form but at the same time, I found it rude to do so. So I just admired it from afar.
As it is my 2nd time visiting this place, I never got around sharing my 1st experience. I actually wanted to take a good photo of that white iconic monument. During that time, something was blocking the whole path towards so I skipped the sharing part. This time around, it was gloomy and the structure was being repaired. So maybe the 3rd visit is my lucky one? Haha.
Inside the hall, you’ll see some artifacts and historical information about this beloved leader. Even his fave dishes were on display.
Ah…the much-awaited changing of the guards. This is done every hour from 9AM until 5PM. When you see people gathering at this point, you know it’s time for that. Fortunately, I got a good place this time and even have a video to prove just that. 🙂
Quite gloomy right? It’s still nice knowing that the monument was for repair. It goes to show how they maintain its tip top shape. Whether the weather (see what I did there 😉 ) is gloomy or not, or the structure being repaired or not, it’s still nice to visit this hall. 🙂
