Chiang Kai-shek's residence was a grand and historic mansion located in Taipei, Taiwan, that served as the former home of the Republic of China's leader.


  • Shilin Residence is the former home and political figures in Taiwanese history
  • Offer a education for visitors to learn about the history and culture of Taiwan
  • Designed in a combination of Chinese and Western architectural styles


Chiang Kai-Shek Shilin Residence was built based on the foundation of the guesthouse constructed by the Taiwan Provincial Government in 1949. It is a simple, practical, two-story building with a slanted roof. Structurally, it combines wood with reinforced concrete. The building was expanded while Mr. Chiang was still alive. In 2006, it underwent restoration and the project was completed in November 2009. The main building of the late President Chiang and his wife, along with the servants’ and guards’ quarters, are painted in dark green, which acts as a camouflage and blends into the surrounding woods for protection. In the Inner Garden, Mr. Chiang and his wife adored flowers, bird and fish feeding, the garden reflecting their elegant lifestyle. Through the arrangement of the living room in the Main Building, we can imagine Mr. Chiang’s family life in the past
