Description
This building contains both the offices and the residence of the President.

Originally built by the Japanese government during its period of occupation, the building served as the offices of the governor-general. During World War II it took a lot of bomb damage and was repaired after the war.

Many lights illuminate the building's exterior at night, and colorful decorations cover the facades during national holidays.

In recent years the building is on occasion open to the public.

Originally no building in Taipei was allowed to exceed the 60-meter height of the Presidential Palace tower. Now this restriction applies only to a few blocks around it.
