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

The purple mountain has a ton of different attractions and this is just one of them. It's kind of a must-see if you are visiting Nanjing for the first time. I brought my parents here when they visited me. It's a decent hike up the stairs. There are some historical artifacts that still have dents from Japanese bombing. At the... More

Easy to spend a day here. Lots to see. Different parts have different entry fees. Pick the places with high entry fees and they will be less crowded.

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

The Sun Yat Sen Memorial is on the edge of the purple mountain. It is one of several significant attractions all in essentially the same place. You come to see one and then you go from one to the other to the other. You can easily spend half a day in the area. The memorial itself is an astoundingly beautiful... More

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...
