As part of a tour, we visited the Wuliang Hall (Beamless Hall) and then took the short walk up to the Linggu Pagoda. Unlike most pagodas in China, it is not old (built in the 1930s) nor is it related to a temple but is a memorial to soldiers killed in the establishment of the Chinese republic in the period 1900-1930, if I understand the signs correctly. It was worthwhile coming here for the views. There were only a few people visiting on a day when the nearby Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum was mobbed with tourists.

This is a memorial tower in honor of the KIAs of the National Revolution Army. The 9-story tower has a winding Staircase so some climbing is required to reach the top where one could get an excellent view of the famous Purple Mountain.

The Pagoda is only a few minutes by foot north of Linggu Temple and offers vistas of the surrounding, including a perspective of one side of the Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum. I reached the Temple by hopping onto a local shuttle (in the form of a faux train on wheels pulling along a number of partially covered "train cars" that each sit 6 - 8 passengers) via the Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum. Tickets for the shuttle are available for 10 RMB from the ticket office to the left of the Mausoleum as you exit. The Pagoda is not immediately visible from the ticket entrance to the Linggu Temple complex, but an easy and obvious meander will get you there past the Wuliang Hall ("Beamless Hall": describing what used to be a meditation and prayer hall built out of stone bricks arrayed to the effect of high arched ceilings, which is now used to host exhibits).

This is the fourth pagoda I saw but the first I climbed. Nine levels high isn't for the faint at heart. Each level has inscriptions of writings fro Sun Yat Sen or Chiang Kai Shek. The tower isn't connected to the Buddhist Monastery. It was designed by an American as a memorial for the fallen soldiers during the Republican era. You might huff and Puff all the way to the top but the view on the top is breathtaking, you will partly see Nanjing City on one side, the Mausoleum of Dr Sun on the other. The stone rails aren't that high so don't lean off the tower to much. This is an experience I will not forget.
