This famous sight required going up tons of steps to get to the Mausoleum but then there wasn’t much there besides a statue. Not much history or background to the place, just a monument. Can take some pictures from the bottom but not really worth...More

One of the highlights of our time in Nanjing. Beautiful buildings, interesting history, and good views. Also good exercise! Along with the Sun Yatsen Mausoleum, there are several other worthwhile spots in the park to visit.

Nanjing has a lots of history that somehow gets overlooked by international tourists. One of the attraction is this place right next to historic Ming Tomb. It’s a must place to visit if you are in NK. There are gardens, statues that are worth seeing...More

This is where Sun Yat-Sen is entombed. As someone who could be called the father of modern China, his mausoleum is appropriately grand. A long staircase leads to his resting place at the top of a high hill with majestic views of the surrounding area....More

The view and the architecture match each other in beauty. Well worth climbing all of the stairs. From what I understand Sun Yatsen was a very important figure in Chinese history, but is little known in western countries. This makes it a very unique thing...More

Sun Yat Sen mausoleum is very well maintained, with clean bathrooms. It is easily accessible by the Nanjing metro (Xiamafang station, Line 2). The mausoleum is in the top of a hill. The steps are nice and clean. From the mausoleum one can get a...More

A combination of history, art, nature and amazing climate is what you would find here. It is recommended to pay a visit to the Purple Mountain and Sun Yatsen Mausoleum.
