Today, the scenic belt along the Qinhuai River develops with the Confucius Temple at the center and the river serving as a bond. The belt featuring attractions like Zhanyuan Garden, the Confucius Temple, China Gate as well as the sailing boats.
The Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum (明孝陵) (Figure 2) is the tomb of Hongwu Emperor, the founder of the Ming dynasty. It lies at the southern foot of Purple Mountain, located at east of the historical center of Nanjing, China. Legend says that in order to prevent robbery of the tomb, 13 identical processions of funeral troops started from 13 city gates to obscure the real burying site. Along with the Ming Tombs north of Beijing, the Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum of Nanjing was inscribed by UNESCO as part of the World Heritage Sites "Imperial Tombs of the Ming and Qing Dynasties".
Sun Yat-sen's Mausoleum (中山陵) (Figure 3) is situated at the foot of the second peak of Mount Zijin (Purple Mountain) in Nanjing, China. Dr. Sun Yat-sen is considered to be the “Father of Modern China” who fought against the imperial Qing government and ended the monarchy and established the Republic of China after the 1911 revolution. With deep historical significance, magnificent architecture and beautiful scenery, Sun Yat-sen's Mausoleum is classified as a AAAAA scenic area by the China National Tourism Administration.
