HistoryEdit

Taichung City Government was initially formed as a provincial city government on 25 October 1945 after the handover of Taiwan from Japan to the Republic of China. Taichung City merged with Taichung County to become a special municipality on 25 December 2010.[1]

BuildingEdit

The first Taichung city hall, known as Taichung Shiyakusho, was constructed in 1911, when Taiwan was under Japanese rule. It has been turned into a cultural center since 2016. The current Taichung City Hall was completed and opened on 10 October 2010.[2]
