It is a place to memorize our National Father, Sun Yat Sun. The whole area is beautiful designed However, may be it is too famous in Nanking, it seems every tourist will come here when you are in Nanking. Really really too crowded! Can't take a photo without people. So, one tip for you. That is to visit it in... More

This is right in the middle of a great park. This is one of the thing anyone visiting should do. The climb up to the mausoleum is really part of the pilgrimage. The view from the top (on a clear day) is beautiful. Very well located for access and a good escape from the city.

Dr. Sun Yat Sen is considered by many to be be father of modern China. People make pilgrimages to his Mausoleum memorial in Nanjing. We made a day trip on the bullet train from Shanghai to visit. It was hotter than anyplace I'd ever been on the day we visited, and climbing over 300 steps was difficult,but well worth it... More

This place gave us a great impression when we visited 15 years ago. Dr. Sun Yat-sen chose this majestic mountain range where his mausoleum was built. When you walk through the archway in 375 meters is the gate. We walked up 392 steps and 10 terraces in between all the way up to the Memorial Hall. You also can see... More

We visited this as part of our all inclusive trips package aboard the Victoria Sophia Yangtze cruise ship which docked nearby and although quite nice I'm sure it meant more to the Chinese people than tourists from outside China. In general it was very busy and after climbing lots and lots of steps there wasn't really much to see.

Unfortunately, you have to go here because of its historical significance and the view (if the sky is clear). However, it's so darn crowded!

I had heard to come here while visiting Nanjing, so I took the advice and came. However, I did not realize that Zhongshan Mountain Park had several attractions throughout the area and that this particular attraction was situated so far away. Instead of taking the tourist bus for 10 r.mb. I walked from the Muxuyuan station to the top of... More

Well designed architectural features and symbolism throughout the monument. At some angles looking up, it appears to be a continous flight of stairs. Similarly, from the top looking down, it appears to be a continous stretch of inclined slope.

Sun Yat-sen is an extremely instrumental figure in modern Chinese history, and is revered my many in mainland China and in Taiwan. The grandeur of his burial place reflects his importance and popularity. There are a few large buildings leading up to the final one, in which he is buried. It would be helpful to do a bit of research... More

So I've been here a couple of times and the best time was the good walk up to the top then it was near to sunset and I took amazing photographs.
