The National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine is dedicated to the people who sacrificed their lives fighting for the Republic of China. The buildings on this compound, modeled after Ming Dynasty palaces, are skillfully crafted. Two military police officers stand guard at the front gate on Bei An Road while two other officers guard the main shrine inside. The changing of the guards occurs once every hour and is quite an elaborate process. The guards are supposed to remain absolutely silent and still during their shift, but if you watch closely, you can occasionally see their eyes wander.
