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.
