impressions | Zhōng shān líng

Hi lovelies,

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:img_1714-1024x768 impressions | Zhōng shān língimg_1717-462x616 impressions | Zhōng shān líng
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.

At the top the main building is located – the mausoleum of Dr. Sun-Yat-sen.

The real mausoleum is in the back – a room we did not visit (I don’t know if it is possible or not).img_1737-462x616 impressions | Zhōng shān líng img_1742-1024x768 impressions | Zhōng shān líng At least after looking downwards you see the size of the whole ensemble which is really impressive.img_1740-1024x768 impressions | Zhōng shān língAgain I’d like to thank you for stopping by and
