Nanjing has been the capital of
several Chinese imperial dynasties.
It has a variety of historical and
cultural heritage evident in its
architecture like imperial
mausoleums, old temples, traditional
garden buildings, and museums; thus,
visitors have various things to do
in and around the city.
Confucius Temple (Fuzimiao)
Xiaoling Mausoleum of Ming Dynasty
Dr. Sun Yat-sen's Mausoleum
Nanjing City Wall
Purple Mountain Observatory
The Purple Mountain (Zijin Shan or literally Purple-God Mountain) Area covers half of the attractions in this city's suburbs. It dominates the northeastern skyline of the city. Some of the famous places of interest found in this area include the father of China's great revolution Dr. Sun Yat-sen's Mausoleum, Xiaoling Mausoleum of the first Ming emperor, Zhu Yuanzhang, and Meiling Palace, a splendid villa built in 1931.
To the east of Dr. Sun Yat-sen's Mausoleum is the well-known Linggu Temple. Built about 1,500 years ago, Linggu Temple surrounded by aged but still flourishing trees is claimed to be the best Buddhist temple in the world. Also, Purple Mountain Observatory and the planetarium on the mountainside are famous tourist attractions for science gurus. Another place of interest in this area is the Plum Blossom Hill where the annual plum festival in the city is held.
If one goes westward of the Purple Mountain area, another picturesque mountain called Qixia Mountain(pronounced as Kitsya) can be found. It is a popular destination for the locals in the area especially during spring and autumn.
