More information

The Former Residence of Sun Yat-sen, at No.7 Xiangshan Road, Shanghai, which is a two-storey European-style building. Sun Yat-sen (1866-1925) was the great pioneer of the Chinese democratic revolution, the founder of the Republic of China. From 1918 to 1925, he and his wife, Mrs. Song Qingling lived here. It was here that Mr. Sun accomplished his renowned masterpieces such as Doctrines of Sun Wen, Plans of China's Development, etc. He reformed the Nationalist Party, advocated People’s Three Principles (Nationalism, Democracy and the People's Livelihood) and put forward the three cardinal policies (alliance with Soviet Russia, cooperation with the Communists and assistance to the workers and peasants). It was also here that he received the representatives of the Communist Party of China and Russia thus caused the first cooperation between the two major parties in Chinese modern history.
On March 4, 1961, the Former Residence of Sun Yat-sen was designated by the State Council as one of China's first major government-protected cultural sites.
Most of the exhibits displayed in the residence are original and arranged as they were in the 1920s and 1930s according to Song Qingling's recollections. The sitting room and the dining room are on the ground floor. Upstairs are the study, the bedroom and a small sitting room. Attached to this building is a two-storey outbuilding originally designed as a garage. In front of the residence is a beautiful garden.
The Former Residence of Sun Yat-sen is a very good place for people to commemorate the achievements of this great man.
