The shrine has become recently popular with the tourists. Located on the mountainside of Shoushan, it is created as the reminiscence of the fallen soldiers of the past. The place has also come into prominence for providing the best views of the southern harbour city. There is an interesting story in the establishment of the place. It was developed from a Shinto shrine into a Chinese palatial after the period of colonization. You can still find some Japanese stone lanterns leading the way up to the shrine. Come here to witness the panoramas that it has to offer. The translucent Pacific Ocean contrasting against the city and its light is definitely a view not to miss. The huge ‘Love sign’ accompanied by pairs of adorable monkey sculptures, not only add to its charm but becomes a thing to remember in your Kaohsiung trip.

  • Changing of the Guard is a must see when visiting Taipei. Happens frequently enough where tourists can always catch one. I would advise taking a cab there since parking is limited. Make sure to get pictures of the murals inside the shrine.

  • Nice place to visit when it's not raining. Somehow I managed to watch the guards changing that was nice as well. I travel here by bus as the MRT is not so close to the place.

  • This is a quick stop to make , try to make it to the changing of the guard. It's once an hour. The grounds are beautiful , definetly worth the visit. The detail on the buildings are awesome.

  • The shrine is beautiful and the colors are just stunning. If you go, be sure to catch the changing of the guards' ceremony.

  • Worthwhile place to visit to watch the changing of the royal guards. However, if you don't have a lot of time, I recommend you to just go to the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial. They also have the changing of the guards there too.
