It was a humid day to visit the Mausoleum, which the electric car that took us from the parking lot did provide some relief for our aching legs. The site is well maintained, the frescoes of Nationalist party still adorns directly above the founder’s tomb....More

I would not go out of my way to see this place but if you are on purple mountain it is a nice place to climb to the top for a good view of Nanjing.

It's a long walk up a lot of stairs to reach the mausoleum. But it's very much worth it. The mausoleum itself is a beautiful tribute to the man, and the views from the site are really great. Very much recommend.

It really worth visiting the memorial place as Dr. Sun Yet Sen created a democratic China back in the 1910s. The memorial place is very grand. But try avoid going during summer, it's super hot and there's not much cover there.
