This memorial place of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen is manificient, very crowded although the weather was pretty cold, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen is the father of all Chinese cause he turned down the Qing Dynasty and has founded the Republic of China, a very strong feeling of respect filled up my heart while walking up the stairs to the highest level, atmosphere...

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

It's a must seem spot in Nanjing. However, you have to climb for more than 350 steps up till you could see Dr. Sun's statue. It's quite a view looking down.

This is an expansive area but the views are spectacular when there is not a lot of smog. The memorial is interesting and the park around it is beautiful.

Took a train from Shanghai to Nanjing and made sure I booked my return ticket straight away, just before leaving Nanjing Long Distance Train Station. Caught a train into town and then a bus to the outer part of the mausoleum. There are a few stairs to walk up, but once at the top their are some wonderful views and... More

basically this is in the middle of the city next to Deiji plaza, it's just a statue, the area could be considered Nanjing's fifth avenue in NYC.

Despite the stairs (The Great Wall though is much worse) which take some pleasure out of this mausoleum, this is truly a good place to learn more about Dr Sun Yat Sen. Be prepared for at least 300+ stairs as you climb your way to the top to the mausoleum and see Dr Sun Yat Sen's final resting place. The... More
