Mausoleum of Sun Yat-sen, Linggu pagoda

October-November 2008
On the slope of the Purple Mountain there is a Mausoleum of Sun Yat-sen.

> To read about Sun Yat-sen in Wikipedia.


To the east from the Mausoleum in about 1.5 km there is a 9-storied Linggu pagoda (灵谷塔 - Línggǔ tǎ) that emerged there in 1381. You can have a free ride to it from the Mausoleum in a auto-locomotive.

The pagoda in its modern shape was built from 1931 through 1933 in memory of officers and soldiers of national revolutionary army.

The most beautiful view to all sides is opened from the Linggu pagoda. The only hindrance while enjoying the landscape — were large wasps that were flying around.

Stamp craftsman

A craftsman making Chinese stamps is working in the park not far from the pagoda. There is some resemblance of actor Steven Seagal to this craftsman. Walking in the park Chinese men ordered each a stamp worth of 300 yuans ($45 USD), and after they were ready, they were running around the table fighting for the right to pay for them.

The craftsman, having noticed my interest, made a tempting discount for me and I decided to order a stamp from him.
