Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall

Guangzhou, China

This memorial building (1931) was erected, a few years after his death, on the very spot where Dr. Sun Yat-sen set up his revolutionary headquarters in 1923. A co-founder of the Kuomintang Party, he made a United Front with Stalin, and is therefore revered (and his legacy claimed) by both the CCP and the KMT. He died in 1925, long before the post-WWII struggle between the two parties would have forced him to make a decision.
