The mausoleum complex is at the top of of a generous set of stairs :) Small gardens and great view from top. Also opportunistic and welcome drink/ice cream vendor :) There are other dynasty tombs in the area also worth visiting. Easy drive from downtown.

It is crowded here. I couldn't climb up because of my leg pain so I just stay at the shops area. My friends who manage to climb up then show a picture with a great view up there. Lucky to have a Chinese friend by my side, I get to buy a souvenir at a bargain price.

Take the tourist tram for 10 RMB and your feet will thank you later, even if this is the only site you visit in the Purple Mountain. We walked to the tomb from the MRT station. After spending an hour there, we took a tram ride to the Mausoleum. The tram dropped us off at the first gate where we... More

Crowded, but spectacular when you get to the area. Listening in to some guides along the way made it easier to understand the background of this place :) There is our fav. pastry shop along here which sells the Jasmine-flavoured pastries. - 好一朵茉莉花, which has great service, and friendly salesgirls.

This is a very popular destination when in Nanjing and would be great to visit if you want great pictures of temples and the view of Nanjing. We took an Uber coming from Jinmao Plaza, which was a 45-minute drive, but it only cost us about 25RMB. The entrance which includes the other scenic spots in Purple Mountain was 70RMB... More

Not the most amazing thing to see (nature and history more my thing), but definitely worth a visit. Just ensure you are well hydrated/energized given the hike up to the top.

We visited before and returned this time with friends, now we went to the observatory and the Sun Yatsen mausoleum. I fully recommend to go by car and use it as much as possible, inside take the small train or the bus, it is a wide place and you will need several hours for a proper visit, but even with... More

Great view and the stairs are not as formidable as it looks, it is easy to climb and the view is great from up there.

Beautiful setting but it doesn't tell enough of the 'back story' of Dr Yatsen and his life, work, and accomplishments. It would be much better with a more robust audio guide.

Excellent. Great way to spend about 3 hours of your day. And it is free. Beautiful view of Nanjing from Purple Mountain. Be prepared to take a taxi if you don't want to walk. You can also use visitors vehicles around the mountain.
