Chiang Kai-Shek statue garden

When the KMT lost power in Taiwan, a bunch of Chiang Kai-Shek statues were moved to this park.


That Chiang and his son (who was also president) had their own mausoleums with expensive security was/is also controversial.

So that is what that was! I was surprised that such a park exists in Taiwan. I thought Chiang Kai-Shek still had more of an official hero status there, I'm surprised some of his statues have been exiled to a park like those in post-Communist countries!

@Ripituc: It depends on who is in office. When the DPP takes over again next year, there will be more Chiang hate.
