The Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall doesn’t have quite the same pristine elegance as its Chiang Kai-Shek counterpart, but it does have the advantage of being a lot closer to the World Trade Center.

Inside the main hall is a rather grandiose statue of the Father of the Nation guarded by two stationary sentries, and underneath it is a museum of the life of this enigmatic figure from modern Chinese history.

The hall is surrounded by a large public park, which is a very popular place for early-morning Taichi exercises. If you’re looking to escape from the hubbub of Computex, it’s definitely worth a visit.
