It was a must visit place to pay respect to Dr. Sun given his importance and contribution to Chinese revolution. The park was very comfortable and by paying C$10, the small train took visitors directly to the beginning of the 392 staircase. Pity now the room where Dr. Sun was buried is not accessible anymore to tourists.

Very nice monument to a man that changed the face of China forever. Hordes of Chinese but very little respect shown at the shrine, as some people don't know that the remains of this great man lie inside.

With a lot of tourists, even if there were trains going up the terrain, we ended up walking. The cold breeze coming from the greeneries helped us survive the walk. I am not Chinese but I was inspired of Sun Yatsen's story. It would be better for non-Chinese tourists if there were English translations.

Sooo many people (also because it was National Week) but a great place to see nonetheless. A bit of a climb up lots of stairs also gives you an awesome view of Nanjing behind you, and the gran mausoleum ahead of you. It was a pretty special experience.

I'm visit this during this autumn. Beautiful sunny and windy day. You must learn a bit of Sun history so that you can know his great revolution. If you visited his museum in Taiwan before, you even can feel how great is Sun. Google it his history ! If you travel this by your own, you can picnic here. There... More

to get to the mausoleum., but there are seven landings, so that even old folks like me can make it to the top. There's not much there, though; Sun is buried far below ground, and once inside the masoleum there is a larger-than-life sculpture of Sun, by an un-renowned European sculptor

We didn't spend that much time at the actual mausoleum, but the walk from the Ming Tombs entry (where we were dropped off by the taxi) towards the stairs that lead to the mausoleum was nice. Depending on the air quality, you can have a pretty decent view of a large part of Nanjing. Combine this with the other attractions... More

This mausoleum is part of the big huge complex, calls Zhongsan Scenic Area, you can get here by taking metro line 1 Mu Xu Yuan station. However, the attraction area pretty far from the train station, approximately 3 km and scattered along this area. You can get the bus to go around, but you need to understand chinese, not many...

Anyone with an interest in Chinese History should visit this. A must for all Chinese visitors, domestic & overseas. Tough climb up the huge number of steps, but motorised cart rides are available for a fee.
