"Remembering Tragedy and Triumph" Nanjing by Rabbityama

Nanjing Travel Guide: 489 reviews and 1,286 photos

Nanjing has some great memorials for very different pieces of Chinese history. It was important for me to visit the Nanjing Massacre Memorial Museum, which was built to pay homage to all of those who died in Nanjing during WWII in the Nanjing Massacre, as well as to educate people today about what occurred here.

In the same city, stands the mausoleum of Sun Yat-Sen, a highly revered figure in modern China and Taiwan. Traveling from one to the other really creates a quick change in mood and atmosphere. One horrific, one heroic; both fascinating.
