Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall

On my June visit to Taipei, I went to Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. Completed in 1980 as a memorial to the former leader of the Republic of China it is still a popular tourist destination. With the change in views of Chiang Kai-shek, feelings and the impressions of the hall have shifted. The open area is now known as Liberty Square and this year the government has announced the Hall will be changed to face “history, recognizing agony, and respecting human rights.”
