              Jinling Cultural Attractions
Jinling was the oldest and most elegant name of Nanjing, the present capital
of Jiangsu Province. The city has a history more than 2,300 years. As the his-
toric capital of six dynasties, Jinling has always been a centre of Chinese civi-
lization since ancient times, and has numerous influential cultural treasures.
Among them are the Ming Dynasty Xiaoling Tomb, which established the 500
year tomb architectural system of the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the former
residence of Gan Xi, the largest civilian residence in China, and Mausoleum
of Dr. Sun Yat sen, the great pioneer of the Democratic Revolution in China,
which is an outstanding work integrating human spirit with architecture.
