I visited Zhongshan Hall which used to be an important venue for special events and is still in use today. While i was there , an exhibition about cameras, movies, records and music was being held, but i am not sure if this is permanent or not. 2000 people can be seated in the great hall.

Zhongshan Hall was built in 1936 and is a mixture of western and modern design. It was built for the coronation of Emporor Hirohito and is where thre Japanese surrender cemonary in 1945 and later when Chiang Kai-sheck delivered public speeches following his re-elections and is worth seeing.There is a park at the back with public conveniences.

We stopped here to take some photos during our walking tour. The building was built by the Japanese colonial government as a city hall. It was later renamed after Dr Sun Zhong Shan. Interesting to visit if you are in the nearby area. The square in front is a nice place to take photos.

Another interesting building in Taipei, worth stopping to see if you are in the area. Built during the Japanese occupation, it has an interesting history. There is another statue of Dr Sun Yat Sen in the adjacent park

This is a dirty/dusty big building with nothing inside really to see. We went to the third floor to admire the "water buffalo" wall. It is a metal (bronze?) relief. I would say it is not worth coming to this place.

A short stop here as part of a walk through this part of Taipei is worthwhile. A quick photo outside. It may be possible to also have a look inside, although there's nothing particularly remarkable to see.
