First Stop: Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall

Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, located in the central part of the city, is one of the popular attractions along the Shiqi section of Qi'ao Ancient Road.


The memorial hall was named "Ren Shan Yu Yu" (仁山玉宇) in 1985, as it lies on a monticule that was originally called "Ren Shan" (仁山), implying Dr Sun Yat-sen's kind-heartedness and compassion for the people, and "Yu Yu" (玉宇) depicts the magnificent buildings in the memorial hall, symbolizing Dr Sun Yat-sen's noble personal quality and great revolutionary spirit.


In front of Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, there is the City Origin for Zhongshan's geographical mapping. It is used to mark the straight-line distance from Zhongshan to other major cities in China and even the world.

Xishan Temple stands on Shiqi District's Xishan Mountain (also known as Wufeng Mountain or Diyi Mountain). Xishan Temple was built during the Jiajing Period of the Ming Dynasty, and it was originally the study area for Mao Kezhen, a local sage in the Ming Dynasty. Later, Xishan Temple was converted into a temple, with a history of over 400 years.
