Dr Sun Yat-sen dedicated his life to the founding of an independent and prosperous China. The demands of the revolutionary movement took a heavy toll on his health, and he eventually passed away on 12 March 1925 in Beijing, having lost his fight against liver cancer. His body was moved temporarily to Biyun Temple (Temple of the Azure Clouds) in Xiangshan, Beijing. Dr Sun Yat-sen had expressed his wish to be buried in Nanjing after his death. His wish was fulfilled. Dr Sun Yat-sens Mausoleum was built in Nanjing and Dr Suns coffin was finally laid to rest in the Mausoleum during the grand funeral held on 1 June 1929. Featuring over 180 historical photographs and invaluable cultural relics, the exhibition introduces the organization of Dr Suns funeral, which includes the construction of Dr Sun Yat-sens Mausoleum and the removal of Dr Suns coffin from Beijing to Nanjing. It probes into the profound meanings of the grand funeral and throws light on how these implicit messages constitute the Mausoleum and the grand funeral of Dr Sun Yat-sen the icon of the era.
