Sun Yatsen Mausoleum us a peaceful place. You can plan to visit it besides another destination (ideally "the purple mountain"). The place is not very big but it gives great informations about Dr Sun Yatsen.

We went to see the Sun Yatsen Mausoleum during a one day trip to Nanjing. It is a bit of hike to get to the top, but the views are worth it. The building is beautiful and architectural is very detailed.

A very worthwhile visit that is very popular with Chinese tourists. You can spend an enjoyable day walking around the Purple Mountain area.

Lots of walking required, but well worth it. Lots of places to buy refreshments and rest. A bit crowded but very friendly people.

Multiple vendors along the staircases use high volume speakers to attract people to have their pictures taken. Seems that they are organized by the management office. Anyway, quite out of place.

He's greatly respected and the display reflects this. Nice, traditional architecture. "Affectionate" statue inside. The steps are actually quite easy to climb. The first 2/3 are about 4 inches in height. Many landings with benches for resting if you need it. Easy to access with...More
