The Chung-Shan Building is in the Yangmingshan National Park of Taipei, Taiwan.[adinserter name=”Block 2″]
The building was used to host political events, ceremonies, and conferences. The building was recently open up to the public. When I say recent, I mean like 10 years ago. It sits on top of a hill and the building is spectacular. It’s white, red and blue like a lot of Western flags except this place isn’t Western.
There’s a huge theater hall where there’s a video about the history behind the building. In addition, there’s a huge torii like gate in front of the building and the view of the city is pretty impressive. The staff speak English; In addition, they’re all very kind and helpful. There’s a guided tour with the entrance fee. It was a few U.S. dollars if I remember correctly. It’s a marvel to walk up the road except for the smell of sulfur. Chung Shan’s grandness isn’t overpowered by the pungent rotten eggs smell. To be honesty, I use the lovely aroma as cologne.
Chung-Shan’s highlight is the art work underneath the stairs. The detail is gorgeous and the colors are very vibrant. It reminded me of the good days at the raves. *sigh* The colors. Lastly, it’s a must-stop if you’re visiting Taipei and Yangmingshan. Also, please leave the air mask at home unless your teeth looks like a great white shark.[adinserter name=”Block 1″]
