BURIAL SERVICES

 

      The construction of the National Revolutionary Martyrs’ Shrine was completed on March 25, 1969. The Shrine Complex covers an area of some 50,000 square meters, of which the buildings occupy more than 5,000 square meters. With the exception of major memorial ceremonies or wreath presentations by foreign quests, the shrine is open almost all the year round to the domestic Chinese public as well as foreign travelers for free tours. And it is open daily from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00P.M. The buildings of the shrine complex can be categorized as follows:


1. Gateway. As tall as a six-storied building, the Gateway appears lofty, splendid and solemn.
2. Wing – Rooms. The courtyard of the shrine complex is flanked with two identical sets of rooms. The one
    on the right has been set aside as a lounge for high-ranking superiors, while the one on the left, a quest
    lounge.
3. Bell Tower and Drum Tower. Both located in front of the Shrine portal, the Bell Tower is on the right while
    the Drum Tower on the left. The bell and the drum are played every time when the President is presiding
    over the memorial ceremony.

4. Shrine Portal. In front of the Shrine Portal are a pair of statues of lions carved out of big pieces of marble.
    The one seeminglyplaying with a colored ball underneath its paws symbolizes a lion of masculine
    gender,whereas the one with a cub, is alioness. The four hexagonal objects on the crossbeams of the
    Shrine Portal are the so-called “door-eyes.” These door-eyes were regarded as the tokens of class
    in ancient times when a palace was usually decorated with four of them, a premier’s mansion with two,
    and none were provided for the mansions of government officials.
5. Civilian-Martyrs Shrine and Military-Martyrs Shrine. Upon entering the Sanctuary, you can see the shrine
    for honoring the civilians who died for their country on the right hand side and the shrine for fallen military
    heroes on the left hand side.

6. Sanctuary. Patterned after the Taiho Palace in Peking, the Sanctuary was built with reinforced concrete,
    except for those wooden parts, such as doors, windows and ceilings, etc. In the center of the Sanctuary
    is a niche, which contains a general spirit tablet for honoring the martyrs as a whole. A tribute table and
    an incense table are placed in front of the above-mentioned niche, beneath which is an alter whereas
    beside which are music platforms. In the interior the hight of the Sanctuary is 17 meters. The exterior of
    the Sanctuary’s roof, is 27.16 meters.
 

Arrangement of Civilian Martyrs’ Tablets

 

    The Sanctuary is regarded as a frame as a frame of reference according to which the tablets of civilian martyrs are arranged in chronological order, starting with the National Founding Period through the subseguent periods of the punitive, campaign against Yuan Chih-Kai, the movement led by Dr. Sun Yet-sen to defend the Provisional Constitution of the ROC, the War of Resistance against Japanese invasion, suppressing the Communist rebellion, up to the present. There are some sperate tablets in the Civilian-Martyrs Shrine for honoring particular fallen leaders or individuals who had made special devotions.

 


Arrangement of Military Martyrs’ Tablets


    In the Military-martyrs Shrine, fallen general officers or posthumously-honored generals are worshipped with single tablets while field and company officers are collectively honored on one tablet in an amount of one hundred only listed on a roll of honor and placed in a box for sacrifice, the decreased non-commissioned officers and enlisted men are categorized and respected with several general tablets according to the period when they dedicated their lives. These tablets are so arranged as to match the following campaigns:
-Eastern Expedition.
-Northern Expedition.
-Encircling operations against the Communists.
-Pacifying the rebellions.
-War of Resistance against Japanese aggression.
-Suppression of nationwide Communist rebellions.
-National recovery.
