The two-level, elevated station structure with one island platform and two exits.[2] The station is situated on the West of Yumen Street, between Kulun Street and Jiuquan Street. The washrooms are inside the entrance area. Notable landmarks are Taipei Expo Park, Chungshan Soccer Stadium, The Grand Hotel, Republic of China Military Police Headquarters, Yuanshan Park and Keelung River.

In anticipation of the 2010 Taipei International Flora Exposition, this station became the first elevated, high-capacity station in the system with automatic platform gates installed.[3][4]

History[edit]

This station was opened on 25 October 1901 along the Tamsui Railway Line as "Maruyama Station" (Japanese: 圓山停車場). South of the former station was a branch line to the Tatung Steel Factory. Now, it is the site of Tatung Company. It was however, closed on 15 July 1988. The Taipei Metro station opened on 28 March 1997.
