National Revolutionary Martyrs Shrine, Taipei Reviews - Write a Review
Very cool place to visit. Try to catch the changing of the guard which happens every hour. The guards walk from one end to the other end and then back again. Don’t try walking to this location! It’s a very long and boring walk. Better to catch a ride. Very nice photo opportunities.
Every hour, the soldiers change position with who is manning the gates at the front and inside at the temple. I would get here about 30 minutes before the hour to ensure you get a good spot to photograph the soldiers on duty. When the soldiers move, they sport impressive choreography. Each solider works at the temple for a year, and then their duties are done. Most soldiers seem young, about 23-28 years old. There is a visitors lounge with free hot/warm/cold water and plenty of seating. It is located to the right of the entrance and before you hit the bathrooms. No soap at the bathrooms but there is toilet paper. Temple is free to visit. When the soldiers move, they have about 3 guardsmen ensuring the crowd does not get too close to them. You can see the worn path from the walking of the soldiers, in a completely straight line from the entrance to the back temple. Just be mindful when you are photographing them, it can get exciting to see and you may not notice where your steps are. Run ahead or stay behind to get some unique shots of the soldiers. Last exchange happens right before 5PM. Temple closes shortly after.
This place is sacred and sincere memorial hall built for patriotic martyrs. You should keep in mind when you get there, you should be polite and solemn. Despite humid and stuff weather, soldiers never even move their bodies. If you get there before every hour on the hour, you can supposedly watch a change of guards lasting about an hour.
This is the second time to come to visit here,it's beautiful landscape and building and statue is unique And free Wi-Fi available here
The guards in white uniform are always marching in cadence. Very disciplined young soldiers.
