Founder of Modern China is well respected and his Mausoleum is well worth the walk up the hill

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... read more

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.

Situated in beautiful but very big park. The site is very big with lots of steps to take. You need to be in good walking condition to walk to the top, the burial site. Very nice surroundings and views.

It's always a great hike up to see Sun-yet Sun's resting place. I really enjoy the walk especially when it's not in the hot hot summers. Last time I went was early April, the weather was perfect. There are close parking lots nearby for easy access. At a decent pace it's maybe a 30 minute hike up. Great views of... More

Wow. I loved it, gathered enough souvenirs for a small army, took a few pictures here and there, survived the bus ride after missing it 10 times and said ni hao to everyone under 2-feet tall. I will return to climb the stairs of Purple Mountain one more time. To the top!

We walked to the tourist station The tourist station is 300 meters north of the Muxuyuan station and is near the overpass. We paid CNY 10 for one way ticket for the tourist bus to Dr. Sun Yat-sent Mausoleum. The bus stopped at the shopping... More

Yes, there's a nice statue at the top and the view is pretty lovely. But the truth is that I was disappointed. I heard there were other rooms in the mausoleum but they must have been closed when I was there. There really wasn't much to see. If you're in the area, you might as well make the trek up... More
