The palace is a location of deep historical significance, particularly in the 19th and 20th centuries - Taiping rebellion, Sun-Yat Sen, etc. It is not a palace in the imperial sense, more like a compound of many buildings from several eras. There is some English signage, but many of the interesting-looking exhibits were only in Chinese. Not being able to read the information makes appreciating Chinese history very difficult. We looked at getting an audio guide but could not find one.

Tucked away in the bustling city of Nanjing, Pilu Temple is home to ginkgo trees with rich historical significance. Towards the end of autumn, the ancient ginkgo leaves gradually change from light yellow to deep gold, creating a harmonious contrast with the ancient architecture. As the ginkgo leaves flutter and fall gracefully, the landscape is adorned with a golden hue. The presence of ginkgo trees adds a profound sense of Zen to the famous temple in Nanjing.

It is easily accessible by the metro. It is spacious and well preserved. It seems to have a lot of history. You can see different offices and residences of previous presidents of China. Its garden is beautiful.

Unless you are into Chinese history this place is not worth a visit for a foreign tourist. Nice gardens though.

We arrived at 2:30pm on Tuesday 8/04/2020. No more tickets available. This is probably due to Covid-19. We got in on Wednesday by showing up at 9:30am. Americans need their passport and their health code (suikang) to get in.

I was excited to see this place to find out more about who ran the country during the Republic of China period and how it was run, but there wasn't much information about this (perhaps because Dr. Sun Yat-sen's offices were being renovated when I visited). It was interesting to hear about the Heavenly Kingdom period, though, as I had never really thought about them as having a ruling entity (I had mostly heard about them causing havoc for the Qing Dynasty) and to hear a bit about rule of the area during the late Qing Dynasty (both entities ruled from this spot).

The presidential palace of Nanjing is very different from that of Taibei. This one is very spacious and worth staying a couple of hours. It seems that the palace is more popular among Chinese people than foreigners, but it is still one of the best tourist attractions for anybody in Nanjing.

It is more of an office building with a big garden surrounding it which is well kept. Not a big area and one can complete the tour within two hours or so but you have to pay (RMB 40 or 20 for senior of 60+) to enter. It is close to downtown area and subway station and after that one can walk to Ming Palace (a small Palace) and the Nanjing Museum which are free to enter.
