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.

  • To Nanjing for the first time. Recommendation must be here. North mountain, commanding, only if there is living water surrounded by treasure.
