Presidential Palace


Sights and Highlights

This impressive building,  formerly known as the Taiwan Governor-General's Office, was completed in 1919 and designed by Nagano Uheji  and Matsunosuke Moriyama during Japanese occupation era  (1895-1945). Japanese officials desired  to build a spectacular building in non-Chinese style to symbolize their rule.

The palace was raised using stone and red brick. It resembles the architecture of late Renaissance Europe, which was extremely popular during the Meiji Restoration period in Japan. The central tower, 60 meters in height, made it the tallest building in Taipei of that time. The image of the Presidential Palace is printed on the 200 NTD note.  For safety reasons,  the access to the building is strictly guarded and controlled. Visitors need to show their ID cards or passports. The nearest MRT station is Taipei Main.
