The Xinhai Guangfu Building 辛亥光復樓 located in Zhongzheng Park on Yangmingshan Mountain, is one of the most famous buildings in the area. It was built in 1971 to commemorate the Xinhai Revolution, that caused the fall of China's last dynasty rule and established Republic of China, which is today continued on Taiwan and some outlying islands such as Penghu, Matsu and Kinmen. The ROC of today, commonly referred to as Taiwan, is very different from the state established on the Chinese Mainland in 1911. It excluded Taiwan, which was under Japan at that time (1895-1945). Read more about the history here and check my photos below.
According to this source, the Xinhai Guangfu building was renovated in 2008 and reopened. When I was there, I've also seen some renovation works in progress. I did't go inside, so the current status is unclear to me. Even so, I would recommend to every visitor, who comes to Yangmingshan, to see this small piece of ROC history with their own eyes.
