Sun Yatsen Mausoleum is situated at ZhongShan Ling (contrary to what I thought, the ZhongShan meant "Clock Mountain" rather than the honorific name of the Dr) and it is recommended that you drive there, else be prepared to walk up the winding roads or take...More

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

Climbed three times so far . Love it . Lots of steps but it is one of the tourist spot not to miss in Nanjing . On a clear day the view is simply majestic

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.
