Reviews about Sun Yatsen Mausoleum


Reviewed on Jun 27, 2019

I went to the Zhongshan Mountain scenic park. Bought my ticket 100rmb which entitles you to visit the 4 main spots Meiling Palace,Meiling Tomb, Purple Mountain (Sun Yat-Sen Mausoleum) and the Linggu scenic area. I would definitely recommend this option. Everything is within walking distance from each other so no need for the bus ticket and DO NOT make use of taxi's driving around there. They are over priced. The mausoleum is definitely the high light but beware its extremely crowded. Even though I went on a Tuesday and it was about to rain... But definitely worth it.

Zhongshan Mausoleum is located in the Zhongshan Scenic Area at the southern foot of Zijin Mountain, Xuanwu District, Nanjing. It is the mausoleum of Mr. Sun Yat-sen, the great pioneer of the democratic revolution in modern China, and its affiliated memorial buildings. The mausoleum covers an area of more than 80,000 square meters. It was completed in the summer of 1929. The Zhongshan Mausoleum is in front of Pingchuan, with Qingzhang on its back, adjacent to Linggu Temple in the east, and Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum in the west. The entire building complex is built on the hillside and gradually rises along the central axis from south to north. The main buildings include Boaifang and Tomb Road. , Tombs, stone steps, stele pavilions, sacrificial halls and tomb chambers are arranged on a central axis, reflecting the style of traditional Chinese architecture. Looking down from the air, it looks like a "liberty bell" lying flat on a green carpet ". The Zhongshan Mausoleum architecture blends the essence of ancient Chinese and Western architecture, solemn and simple, and unique in style. The buildings of the Zhongshan Mausoleum have achieved excellent results in the combination of shapes, color use, material expression and detailed processing. The music platform, Guanghua Pavilion, Liuhui Pavilion, Yangzhi Pavilion, Tibetan Scripture Building, Xingjian Pavilion, and Yongfeng Society , Yongmulu, Zhongshan Academy and other buildings surround the mausoleum like the moon, forming the main landscape of the Zhongshan Mausoleum. The harmonious and unified color tone enhances the solemn atmosphere. It has both profound meaning and grandeur. All of them are masterpieces of famous architects, with extremely high artistic value, and are known as "the first tomb in the history of modern Chinese architecture".
