Nanjing Botanical Garden Memorial Sun Yat-Sen, Nanjing
(4.4/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Nanjing vacation generator to arrange your visit to Nanjing Botanical Garden Memorial Sun Yat-Sen and other attractions in Nanjing.

  • 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
