Out side the gate of ChiangKai-shek Memorial Hall, there are poles carrying the sign of true rightness. The architecture of ChiangKai-shek Memorial Hall is inspired by Tientam inBeijing. The four sides of the structure are similar to those of the pyramids in Egypt.
The material is white marble. The roofs are decorated with deep-blue glass as part of the reflection of blue sky and bright sun. It adds a touch of grandeur. The garden is planted with red flowers. As a whole, the colors of blue, white and red express theNational Flag and the spirit of freedom, equality and brotherhood.

Presidential Office Building: This renaissance-style building has been the highest seat of government in Taiwan forever a century, first as the office of the governor general's office during the Japanese-colonial period, and after 1949 as Taiwan's "White House." National festivals arrested here.
The Presidential Office Building is located on Chongqing S. Road and facingKetagalan Boulevard. On the back it is Bo-ai Road, on the left it is Baoqing Road, and-on the right it is Guiyang Street. The Presidential Building is close to Taipei MainStation and Ximending. The building was built during Japanese colonization period. Itwas the governor's mansion at that time. During the ending period of World War II, the building was seriously damaged due to bombing. After Taiwan was reclaimed byR.O.C., the building was re-constructed in 1946. The building was re-named as"Jieshou Building" in celebration of the 60th birthday of former president Mr. ChiangKai-shek. The building has been used as the presidential mansion after the central government of R.O.C. was re-instated in Taiwan.
Martyrs' Shrine: The Martyrs' Shrine, resting on the slopes of the Qing Mountain and overseeing theKeelung River, is located right next to the Grand Hotel. It was built in 1969 and covers a large area. Its grand and magnificent architectural style is similar to that of the TaiheDian Imperial Palace in Beijing, Mainland China, and symbolizes the martyrs' brave spirit.
More than 10,000 ping (33,000 m2) of grass fields surround the structure, and protected by the neighboring mountains it breathes a serene atmosphere which even more emphasizes its solemn and stately character. The 330,000 men who sacrificed their lives to the revolution before the establishment of the Republic of China and who fell during the Sino-Japanese war and the Chinese Civil war are worshipped here.Plates of these brave and loyal martyrs have been inserted into the four walls of the main building in testimony of their heroic deeds.Each spring and autumn the president of Taiwan leads both civil and military official sin a public worship, while leaders from Taiwan's befriended countries come and pay floral tribute. Each year in October groups of overseas Chinese also come to visit the site. Worth mentioning are the military police officers who guard the main gate, and who have been rigidly trained to stand like expressionless statues and remain unmoved by the teasing of tourists. Tourists alike are amazed at this display of composure and flock to see the ceremonial changing of the guards.
