Taipei: Sun Yat Sen Historic Events Memorial Hall

Our last stop in Taipei was to visit the Dr. Sun Yat-sen Historic Events Memorial Hall.

We had walked passed it already on Monday, but it was closed. So we came back on a Tuesday to have another look, as the garden looked so peaceful and beautiful.

This spot located near the Taipei Main Station is not as famous as the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, also dedicated to the “Father of Taiwan”.

Its real value lies not in the few belongings and photographs of the doctor, but in the building itself and its garden.

A piece of the old Japan lost in the middle of the city, built by the Japanese during the early twentieth century as a high-class accommodation called Umeyashiki Inn, where the doctor stayed in 1913.
