Nanjing is the old capital of China and you get to see the grave of this great man in the memorial hall which you will need to climb quite a number of stairs to reach. It is located in a very big park and not to far from the city center. There are many tourist visiting this attraction every day.

Be prepared to go up the mountain and then up quite a lot of steps,battle the crowds of School Children and then take photos with them. Once at the tomb you would be impressed by what this Great Man achieved and why he is so revered

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
