Cherry Blossom & Azalea Haven – Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall 中正纪念堂

If you wish to see cherry blossoms and azaleas in the ❤ of Taipei, then this national monument is the place to be! Both flowers will greet you blushingly from mid-Feb to early March. It’s also a must for history buffs out there.

Photos taken on March 8, 2019

Azaleas are like bigger versions of cherry blossoms! ❤


This historical landmark was built in honor and memory of Chiang Kai-shek, former President of the Republic of China between 1928 and 1975. First in mainland China until 1949, and then in Taiwan until his death. Also known as the controversial leader of Taiwan, as he was responsible for the massacre in the country that happened on February 28, 1947. The architecture of the place was inspired by Tiantan in Beijing. The four sides of the structure are similar to those of the pyramids in Egypt.

The square in front of the memorial hall was known as, “Liberty Square”.


MRT: Depending on where you’re coming from, you can take either the RED or GREEN line.

Got here at around 7:15 AM, that’s why there were no photo bombers yet 😀
Pretty in pink
Not yet in full bloom, but still stunning

  1. Oh wow, the architecture of the Chiang Kai-Shek hall is very impressive. And I LOVE cherry blossom, so beautiful! You have some great photos of the azaleas too. I love the umbrella photo, that’s so pretty! Good idea to get there early & have some space to yourself.

  2. The droplets of water on the petals in these photos add so much life to the flowers, figuratively as well as physically. Also, I love the symmetry of the stones in the square. The structures with the flowers look so harmonious — it’s all so unblemished and elegant looking. :O)
