Sun Yat-sen mausoleum

Purple Mountain, rising at the east of Nanjing, is dotted with heritage sites and is popular for its views. A steep set of stairs leads to the mausoleum of Sun Yat-sen, who founded the Republic of China here in 1912 and is considered the father of modern China. On your way up, turn around for views such as this.
