to be honest – after this day my legs told me “it is enough!”. Because after visiting the observatory on Purple Mountain and walking to the Ming tombs, we continues our sightseeing trip walking to the Zhōng shān líng – the mausoleum of Dr. Sun-Yat-sen.
The whole area is similar to other Chinese buildings: the entrance is marked by an impressive gate:
Between the entrance hall and the mausoleum is a second hall. Inside there is a stone on which the name and dates of Dr. Sun-Yat-sen are written.
After passing this building a huge number of stairs leads t the main hall of the mausoleum … Just like us many people used the stairs for taking pictures of themselves.
At the top the main building is located – the mausoleum of Dr. Sun-Yat-sen.
Through the centre door you get a view on the statue of Dr. Sun-Yat-sen in the front room of the building. The real mausoleum is in the back – a room we did not visit (I don’t know if it is possible or not). At least after looking downwards you see the size of the whole ensemble which is really impressive.Again I’d like to thank you for stopping by and
Have a wonderful time!
