Chinese people being history buffs flock to this park, commemorating the founding father of its modern state. the vast park if filled with trees, and at the end is a hall with the statue of Sun Yat Sen, reminiscent of Abe's hall, except it has the Nationalist Party's flag on its ceiling. taking pictures is forbidden inside, but that won't...

From a historical perspective, this is a must visit site. This place depicts Dr. Sun Yat Sen's achievements and lifestyle from a bygone era. It is an excellent site for the family and friends. If you are lucky, you may even be able to take a photograph with a Mandarin gentleman at the entrance.

It is a long climb up to the mausoleum, but the steps are even which makes it easier. As long as the day is clear there is a good view. As you climb the stairs try to stop to look back as you get a good view of the blue rooves. When I visited the memorial was very crowded but... More

Visit on a sunny day, climb the steps and enjoy the view. Use as a jump off place to other areas of Purple Mt.

Dr Sun Yat-Sen’s mausoleum is high up on the mountain and it’s a long walk from the parking lot. From the memorial archway, a wooded boardwalk snakes through a moderately dense forest of coniferous trees and from far off, the first gate with the three arches can be seen. A lot of stair climbing is involved but the effort is... More

Love the historic settings and view . Must go place of interest . Highly recommended . They have also eateries and gift shop within the vicinity . Be prepared to walk the 392 steps upwards to the final point where Dr Sun Yat-sen status sits. Behind the status is his resting area but is not open at all times .... More

Moere or less hidden in the forest. Lots of visitors, but most of them native. We did not know at first who he was and how important he has been in the Chinese history. Afterwards we learned more of him.

Absolutely majestic! One of the must sees in Nan Jing~! The path to the very top of the memorial might be somewhat treacherous because after you take the metro here, you need to walk for about 1km UPWARDS toward the top of the mountain to get to the entrance of the Memorial. That's NOT all, because you then will need... More
