There are unexpected niche attractions in the Zhongshan Scenic Area in Nanjing

Many people talk about Zhongshan in Nanjing, and the first thing that comes to mind is definitely the Zhongshan Mausoleum, but in fact, there are many places and scenery worth a visit here.

Linggu Temple Road

This is one of the best places to see the phoenix tree. The Shaolin Temple Road in summer is like a green tunnel of love, and in autumn, walking with your loved one on both sides of the road, the golden leaves on the ground and the sound of rustling leaves are romantic! Compared with Huanling Road and Zhongshan East Road, this road has less traffic, so it is particularly quiet and suitable for taking photos to remember!
This area became a popular tourist spot in Nanjing until the end of last year. In mid-November, the water cypress in the lake and the distant red maple complement each other, forming a natural scenic belt. In fact, I came here to take pictures in 2014 and 2015. At that time, many people would ask for the specific location on their moments. It wasn't as popular as it was at the end of last year, it all relied on numerous "photographers"! It is also called Nanjing's Little Jiuzhaigou!

Republic of China Postal Museum

The postal office in Zhongshan Scenic Area is often seen on the map, but it is difficult to find. In fact, it is located at the intersection of several roads, but its location is relatively hidden and the area is not large. This place used to be where Soong Mei-ling often sent letters, and it can be said to be the front yard of the Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum. It has a history of more than 80 years and it was reopened as a museum in 2013 after the liberation.


Formerly known as Yanque Lake, Nanjing Qianhu is a natural lake comparable to Xuanwu Lake. In ancient times, it was called Huohu, and it has beautiful scenery. It is also adjacent to the Nanjing city wall and offers various types of scenery in all directions. In recent years, with the construction of surrounding greenways, it has become one of the favorite scenic areas for cycling, morning exercises, and even photography enthusiasts in Zhongshan.

Flow Huixie

Nanjing people are accustomed to calling this place "Shuixie". As the name suggests, there is water on three sides, and the pavilion is in the water. The calm lake surface reflects the Purple Mountain, and the water pavilion is like an oil painting, very beautiful. Whether it's spring, summer, autumn, or winter here, if the weather is good, looking at the reflection is quite interesting. And it is only a short distance away from the straight line between Zhongshan Mausoleum and Linggu Temple.
