The Taipei Zhongshan Hall s a historical building. It was originally known as the Taihoku (Taipei) City Public Auditorium. It was built in the Japanese colonial era to honour the accession of the Japanese Emperor Showa. When Taiwan was retroceded to China, it was renamed Zhongshan Hall in honour of Dr Sun Yat-sen. It was recognised as a historic site in 1992.

"Zhongshan" refers to Sun Yatsen, founder of modern China. The hall has been declared an historic monument. It is used for civic functions. It is located in Taipei's inner city area. It is worth a look, but I have never been inside, it doesn't appear to be open for visitors often. Dr Sun, as he is known, is honored a stateman.

Zhongshan was the soubriquet of Sun Yatsen, founder of modern China. The hall was once called he Taipei City Public Auditorium. It is in the Ximending neighbourhood of the Zhongzheng District. By the way, it was declared an historic site in 1992 but unless you have an interest in Chinese history, there is not much to see.

There’s a lot of potential to make this a major tourist site. However, all of the posters that are on the view are in Chinese.

This is not a popular destination for common visitors nor for local people. Built during the ruling period of Japanese and the building is well maintained and operates fine performances - Google the show schedule. A very lovely tea house on the 3rd floor and Le Prominoir Coffee on the 4th floor - perfect for travelers with a relaxed schedule!

Building was constructed in 1936 for the coronation of Emperor Hirohito. Later ti was where the Japanese signed the surrender documents in 1945. Then Chiang Kai-shek made public speeches from the terrace. The work called "Water Buffalo" - claimed to be local masterpiece - is presented inside the building. For me - not worth the extra excursion, but if you're around few minutes ahould be enough.

Appreciated that this is open to the public. However, wish there was more information on the inside in English on the significance of the building and events that took place here.

The Zhongshan Hall was built in 1936. It is nothing special but part of a walking tour around town. A mixture of western and eastern styles.

I stopped in because it has the same characters as my name. I enjoyed the architecture and how the building smelled. There wasn't much happening for guests to enjoy at the time I stopped in.

After exploring the surrounding grounds (which had statues and historic photographs) we followed LP's advice and went into the Hall after admiring the architecture from the outside only. Three floors .. all well maintained. Exhibitions are mostly in Chinese (there was a nice colonial exhibition I wish I could read while we were there!) Expensive cafe in beautiful ambiance if you'd like have some tea or coffee or a bite to eat. Found it worthwhile to poke around for about 20 minutes and then we were on our way again!) There's a video on the first floor that highlights some of the buildings wonders with English subtitles.
