Taiwan - Martyr's Shrine Change Of Guards Ceremony


The Martyr's Shine was built to commemorate soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the country during the War of Resistance against Japan and Civil War between Nationalist Government and the Communist Party.


The Martyr's Shine was built in 1969, with the main architecture designed similar to Taihe Dian Imperial Palace in Beijing. The grand design symbolizes the braveness and selfless spirits of the martyrs.


The highlight of this scenic spot is the performance of shifting guards at the beginning of each hour. This noble performance often attracts crowds of onlookers from all over the world.


When finishing change of shifts, the shifted soldiers will then stand still in front of the Martyr’s Shrine for the next hour like solemn statues with serious facial expressions and manners until next hour.
