All history lovers will appreciate this visit. Dr Sun did so much for the PRC and I'm so glad I had a chance to visit. To appreciate the visit, read up on why he is important to China before going.

Be sure that you wear a comfortable shoe as you might take long walk to the top. actually it has so many places... More

This is a must if you're ever in Nanjing. A very large and most impresive memorial to the father of modern China.

It's a long, mildly uphill walk to the mausoleum, the actual building of which was closed on a Monday at the hour I visited, for maintenance, so could only look in the window but couldn't see much. Nice leafy grounds surround.

Knowing one's Asian history is important to understand China, Taiwan and the relevance of Nanjing. A lot of that history can be learned here. Make sure to go to every exhibit.

The visitors of Nanjing should not omit to visit this Impressive Monument for Sun Yat Sen, thinker and creator of the Republic of China. The beautiful style of the building and its internal decorations as well as the view you can enjoy, will make you forget your climb up to the hill. The statue itself is simple but radiates the...

From a historical perspective, this is a must visit site. This place depicts Dr. Sun Yat Sen's achievements and lifestyle from a bygone era. It is an excellent site for the family and friends. If you are lucky, you may even be able to take a photograph with a Mandarin gentleman at the entrance.
