Though it is a mausoleum, you cant see the body except that you would walk round a casket with the figure of Sun Yatsen on top. Lots if walking.

Visited with coworkers after the meeting. The place is amazing and the view from the Mausoleum is breathtaking.Be prepare to walk and climb up the stairs way to the Mausoleum. People pay respect to Dr Sun Yat-Sen who is the father of modern China.
