Architectural Building
Climbing up the slope of a hill and surrounded by a dense forest of pine and cypress trees, Nanjing Botanical Garden Memorial Sun Yat-Sen houses the final remains of the founding father of modern China. Sun Yat-Sen lead the 1911 revolution that ended the monarchy and initiated the republic. Enter his mausoleum through the marble memorial archway and follow a shaded passage, which leads to the triple arcade with three pairs of copper gates. The inscription over the gates, featuring four Chinese characters, reads “the world is a commonwealth.” Walk up the long, wide stairway, which leads up from a pavilion to a sacrificial hall housing a 4.6 m (13 ft) tall statue of a seated Sun Yat-Sen holding an open book.

  • The guides, rightly state that fact among the things not to miss in Nanjing, it is true, well worth the money, a little tiring the visit, but the view is worth two hours of time.

  • The Memorial is a huge complex, part of which offers a visit to Purple Mountain. Usually it's people, but even so it is not difficult to move. Reaching the monument with the statue of Sun Yat Sen requires traversing a large patio and a rise by a long staircase. Since it can be seen throughout the Valley, once at the top. Requires something of effort physical and not less patience with the sea of people, but definitely worth the penalty, without last more than 2 hours.

  • 新园、老园分居植物园路两侧,春天菊花展,秋日桂花节,不甚美哉……新园内室内馆栽植了名目繁多的各类植物,适合小朋友赏玩长见识。踏青秋游好去处!
  • 第一次到南京。推荐必须到此一游。北门环山,居高临下,唯一如果再有活水环绕,风水宝地也。
  • An incredible place
