The Former Residence of Dr Sun Yat-sen
Situated at No.7 on Xiangshan Road, the western-style two-storied building was bought for Dr. Sun Yatsen, sponsored by a Canadian overseas Chinese. You can find a beautiful landscaped garden in front of the building. Entering the house, the dining room and the sitting room are on the first floor and the bed room and the study are on the second floor. This is the house where Dr. Sun Yatsen and his wife Madame Soong Ching Ling lived for 6 years from 1918 to 1924. Many of his important revolutionary activities were conducted here, so were the 'Program for Founding the Republic', 'Theories of Sun Wen' and 'Industrial Program'. On August 1922, in this building, he met representatives from the Central Committee of the communist Party of China Lidazhao and Lin Boqu and consulted with Yue Fei. Under state protection, Dr Sun Yatsen's former residence has been listed as a key cultural relic site.
