National festivals are hosted here. The Presidential Building was built during Japanese colonization period, it was the governor’s mansion at that time. During the ending period of World War II, the building was seriously damaged due to bombing. After Taiwan was reclaimed by R.O.C., the building was re-constructed in 1946. The building was re-named as “Jieshou Building" in celebration of the 60th birthday of former president Mr. Chiang Kai-shek. The building has been used as the presidential mansion after the central government of R.O.C. was re-instated in Taiwan.

The National Palace Museum building in Taipei was constructed from March 1964 and was completed in August 1965. The Palace Museum holds an enormous treasure inherited from the previous Sung, Yüan, Ming and Ching dynasties. The museum is house of over 700,000 pieces of ceramics, bronzes, paintings, jades and more. The collection is far too large to be all displayed at once. While many popular pieces are displayed permanently, much of the collection of jade, porcelain, paintings and bronzes is rotated regularly. Most of the pieces hosted in this museum belonged to the Chinese imperial collection, which began over a thousand years ago.
