Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall (Sūn Zhōngshān Jìniàn Tàng)

Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall (Sūn Zhōngshān Jìniàn Tàng) Review

This handsome pavilion stands in a garden behind a bronze statue of the leader. Built in 1929–31 with funds mostly from overseas Chinese, the building is a classic octagon, with sweeping roofs of blue tiles over carved wooden eaves and verandas of red-lacquer columns. The Memorial Hall is split into four grand buildings, and includes an auditorium with seating for 5,000. Worth noting are the golden characters reading Tian Xia Wei Gong ("Peace and Harmony Universally") on the front door.
