Purple Mountain is just west of urban Nanjing. It has many parks, sites and scenic areas connected to the park area including Xuanwu Lake and Jiming Temple at its foot to the east. Sun Yat–Sen walked on the mountain, and his mausoleum is on a small hill at its base. The ancient historical sites include the Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum and Linggu Temple. Another major ancient historical site is the tomb of Sun Quan from the Three Kingdoms period. There is a big pond called Zixia Lake. Since many of the Nanjing highlights are on or around the mountain, it is an important destination in a tour of Nanjing.
Location The mountain can be seen west of the city. It is near the main train station called Nanjing Train Station (or Nanjing North Train Station).
Transportation: Take Bus No. 9 or Bus Y1 from the city. You can catch Bus No. 9 at Xinjiekou. Many other buses go there.
