Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall

Dr. Sun Yat-sen's Memorial Hall, a national major cultural relic of Guangdong Province, was designed by Mr. Lu Yanzhi, a reputable Chinese architect, and sponsored by the local people of Guangzhou and overseas Chinese to commemorate Dr. Sun Yat-sen, the great forerunner of Chinese revolution. The Hall saw its construction started in 1929 and completed in 1931 at where the Presidential Pa-lace had been.

Dr. Sun Yat-sen's Memorial Hall, an octagonal building with grand presence, features a strong Chinese style. The 52m-high main hall accounts for 12000m2 out of the total 6.3 hectares of the whole complex. It spans as wide as 71 meters in the absence of a single pillar, thanks to the designer's ingenious application of the architectural mechanics and structural combination of steel framework and ferroconcrete. The main hall holds a 15m-wide, 20m-deep stage and 3238 seats. Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall is one of most symbolic buildings of Guangzhou, and it is also a major site for great convention and performance, a tourist attractin to visitors from home and abroad.
