Taichung Prefectural Hall
It is easily accessible and convenient as it situates nearby Taichung Railway Station, modern shopping district and traditional old street. The state government building along with the subordinating complexes are designated as historic buildings.
The state government building is a French mansard-style architecture featuring a two-story L-shape floor plan. The architecture faces east with a tower structure in the middle. The entrance on the ground level is adorned with Doric columns, while the second floor is constructed with ionic columns. The inward balcony design is to enhance the shading effect on the facade.
After appreciating the extravagant architectural details of Taichung Prefectural Hall, you can also stop by the neighboring Taichung Shiyakusho for some afternoon tea!
