“The Beijing Ming Tombs in Nanjing”

Ruins of the Ming Palace
Ranked #52 of 404 things to do in Nanjing
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 January 2017

If you didn't want to visit the ones in Beijing, this is the next best option. The stone animal walk way, is very similar to the one in Beijing but there is also a landscaped garden / park with a few pavilions which is nice for photos or to wander around. I visited on a cold, cloudy day, but would have liked to have gone back in better weather, when the plum trees were in bloom. You need to transverse this area on route to the tomb buildings, so it is really part of the attraction and a not separate entity.

Had a lady approach us asking to see if we need a private tour guide. For 100 yuan I decided it's fine. Wow! She was an encyclopedia on steroids! Lots of historical tales and it's relation to the structures, design and layout of the land. Well worth the 2 hours. I would not visit without the guide.

There is not a lot in terms of visible ruins or artifacts. But there are a few.

If you are looking for a quiet, green space to sit and think, this is better than most Chinese parks. I was there on a weekend and there were some people there but it was not crowded. There were quiet corners or benches available. Most of the tables or prime spots were taken by locals playing cards.

To be honest, it is not really interesting to see. It is just a park, and hardly come tourists. But if you like to contemplate the glory of old days, you can maybe visit there.

Went to check out the ruins of the Ming Palace so that we could see something that was authentic and unrestored. We were pretty disappointed by the ruins which are little more than a few rocks on the ground. Situated in a nice park area though so was a nice walk anyway. Not really worth a visit unless you are in the area.
