It is quite a distance to get to the Memorial, but once you are there it is very pleasant with an amazing view of the surrounding area (if it is not too hazy). Dr. Sun was an amazing man.

You need extra energy to walk from the bus stop and climb hundreds stairs to the location of the Sun Yat sen Memorial. Bring water and money to buy sweet melon after a journey that takes so much energy. The scenery was exquisite.

Set on the slopes of a mountain you start your journey through the arches and up a beautiful tree lined avenue to the base of the steps, you are then faced with quite a hike up about 1000m of steps in all, halfway is a break and then another set of steps up to the Sun Yat sen Sacrificial Hall...

Sun Yat Sen is indisputably the only Chinese leader in modern Chinese history who is respected highly both by the Taiwanese and the Mainland Chinese. After all, it was a rebellion led by him which saw the founding of modern China sans the monarchy. A visit to this place would be most meaningful if you are a Chinese or if... More

The location of the memorial is pretty amazing. This memorial is located inside the main park of Nanjing. You have to climb up a long stair to reach the memorial, but it's totally worth it, because you will be able to see an impressive landscape. You will also be able to take awesome picture of a very characteristic and historical... More

Its a place of high importance to chinese people. Situated outside the city, The view from the top is great. The location is serene, can be clubbed in a day trip to many spots nearby like the aquarium and water world. The view on the way is amazing.

But I secretly took them anyway. How could I not? This is the man who sums up modern China. If you looked at the top you can still see the KMT party flag. I am impressed that the communists left it unscathed. It shows all the more how respected this man deserves to be.

Heard from a friend that this was one thing not to miss out on in Nanjing. Took the park bus from XiaMaFang (下马坊) to ZhongShanLing (中山陵) for 10rmb, then proceeded to climb up all the stairs to get to the memorial. There really isn't much to see at the top, just a statue and some writing on the wall. The... More
