The Tomb was by far the most interesting part about visiting Nanjing. Be prepared to spend at least a full day. Two days at a nice leisure pace. It is nestled in the heart of a very vast park filled with statues, waterways, buildings and culture. The Tomb features a massive mausoleum built in 1405 for Ming Emperor Zhu Yuanzhang... More

The two walking paths are the best attraction there. The 70 Yuan entrance fee is too high considering the tomb itself is not excavated. Not much to see. The statues on Shen Dao (holy road?) and Shi Xiang Lu (stone elephant road) are amazing. They shouldn't have put any plants around. It's made the place totally lost the serene, sacred... More

I walked here from the Hanyuan Hotel, which is about 30-40 minutes away. The entrance fee was 70 yuan. There are several entrances. I entered from the one nearest the first gate which is a very tall impressive building. The final part of the tomb appears as a high imposing stone wall. You go up steps in the centre of... More

Gorgeous area and fascinating history. Full of tourists, but that's China - you can't expect differently. Don't go on a tight schedule, as this whole place is huge and there are many things to see. Reserve a full day, I'd say. If you feel tired or want to save some time, there are mini-buses from one attraction to another and... More

This well preserved tomb along with the gorgeous 600 metres "spirit path" is located in a beatiful park, much better worth visiting than Xiaoling successors in the famous 13 Ming Tombs Valley near Beijing. Take your student card along and get a reduced entrance fee ;-)

Visited at the recommendation of our hosts. The tombs are located within a very large urban park. Well worth visiting but you must have good walking shows. Access to vehicle is limited in the park and you must walk a great deal to get to it. I enjoyed the walk through the "spirit ways" and their stone guardians. It reminded... More

The architecture must be excellent considering the period. The engineering must be prefect to build such a site. I was told repair and modernisation was done to the site and I still feel the whole site is impressive. I am a handicap person who cannot walk long distance and I wish mini cart can be provide for us ONLY. The... More
