Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum is the burial site of Sun Yat-sen (1866-1925), a great democratic revolution pioneer in China. It is situated at the foot of the second peak of Mount Zijin (Purple Mountain) in Nanjing, China.

The construction of the tomb started in January 1926 and finished in the summer of 1929. Reclining on a mountain slope, the majestic mausoleum blends the styles of traditional imperial tombs and modern architecture, covering an area of more than 80,000 square meters (8 hectares).

In addition to the mausoleum, there are also a handful of memorial buildings that surround it, such as Guanghua Pavilion, Xingjian Pavilion, Yangzhi Pavilion, Music Stand, Liuhui Pavilion and Scriptorium.
