Photographer's Note

In central area of Nanjing there is a big mountain transformed in an urban park with temples, mausoleums, etc. Here we have a huge stairs that takes to the Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum. The monument is built as a traditional Chinese mausoleum, divided in gates and successive pavilions. In the last one we have a hall with the sculpture of the president similar with the hall of Lincoln in Washington.
Sun Yat-sen was very important to put down the last Chinese dynasty and fought many years to get success after many defeats. At the end he became the first president of China and died soon in Beijing with a cancer.
His brother took him to be educated in USA and he became a Christian there, his brother sent him back to China to avoid this and he destroyed an idol in a temple and escaped to Hong Kong, he became a doctor and wanted to modified the Chinese society, making it modern one,at first with suggestions to the imperial government and after decided to use other guns.

Na parte central de Nanquim (Nanjing) h uma grande montanha que virou um parque urbano, ali podemos ver mausolus e templos e outras construes. Vemos aqui uma parte da longa escadaria dentro do complexo do Mausolu de Sun Yat-sen. O monumento foi construdo de acordo com o estilo tradicional chins, numa srie de pavilhes, separados. Num dos ltimos h uma sala onde est a esttua dele sentado, parecida com aquela de Lincoln em Washington.
Sun Yat-sen foi muito importante para derrubar a ltima dinastia da China, isso depois de muitas derrotas. Foi elevado ao cargo de primeiro presidente da China, mas morreu logo depois devido a um cncer. Seu irmo o levou para viver nos EUA pois queria educ-lo melhor. Mas o garoto comeou a se interessar pelo cristianismo e o irmo o mandou de volta China, onde ele acabou destruindo um dolo de um templo e teve que fugir para Hong Kong. L estudou medicina e comeou a desejar a modernizao da China, enviou sugestes ao governo imperial, mas ao fim, vendo que nada mudava, decidiu-se pelas armas.
