Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum (Zhōngshānlíng)

Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum (Zhōngshānlíng) Review

Acknowledged by both the Nationalist and Communist governments as the father of modern China, Sun Yat-sen lies buried in a delicately carved marble sarcophagus, reached by a wide staircase. His final resting place is the center of a solemn and imposing monument to the ideas that overthrew the imperial system. Steep trails wind up the pine-covered hillside, which feels a world away from the Nanjing's hyperkinetic buzz. The mausoleum gets crowded on weekends, so try to come during the week.
