PLEASE ASK PERMISSION BEFORE YOU RE POST MY PHOTOS ON TO YOUR BLOG. THERE ARE SOME BLOGGERS WHO DID NOT ASK MY PERMISSION AND REPOST MY PHOTOS WITHOUT THE COURTESY OF LINKING BACK TO MY BLOG. THIS IS LIKE STEALING. PEOPLE, I HAVE SPEND MUCH TIME TAKING PHOTOS AND DOING HOMEWORK ON MY TRAVELLING INFORMATION AND KINDLY SHARE THESE INFORMATION TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN THEM. IF NECESSARY I WILL POST SCREEN SHOT OF YOUR BLOG TO SHOW YOUR BAD MANNERS OF STEALING MY PHOTOS. THE MOST DISGUSTING THING THEY DID WAS TO SCREEN SHOT MY PHOTO AND CORP OFF MY BLOG TITLE AND REPOST IN THEIR BLOG. After visiting Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall, we decided to visit Western Han Nanyue King's Tomb Museum just a short walk from Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall about ten minutes walk.
You can see from the above map how to walk to the museum from the Sun Yat Sen memorial hall. Just exit from the side door (on the right hand side of the statue of Dr. Sun Yat Sen), then turn to the right and cross a smallroad, and turn left, walked all the way down till the road junction where you can see a overhead pedestrian bridge, dont climb the steps, you can always use the other pedestrian crossing on the right.
After crossing the road , turn to the right and you can see a bright orange building, that's where the museum is. Best to take photo of the map in the Sun Yat Sen metro station and you can view the map from your camera screen so you wont get lost. Difficult to ask people the direction if you do not know mandarin.
The Museum of the Mausoleum of the Nanyue King ( 西汉南越王博物馆; literally "Western Han Nanyue King Museum") is a museum in Jiefangbei Road, Yuexiu District, Guangzhou, southern China. With an area of 1,4000 sq. m, the tomb is the witness of Guangzhou’s history of over 2,000 years. It is well known for its well-preserved tomb and funerary antiquity from the Han Dynasty, as well as elegant and grand architecture from the Lingnan (south of the Nanling Mountain) area.
The owner of the tomb is the second king of Nanyue, Zhao Mo (r. 137 BC – 122 BC).
The tomb was discovered in 1983 and the museum opened in 1988. It is 20 meters under Xianggang Shan (Elephant Hill) in Guangzhou on a construction site for a hotel, and was excavated. The tomb is nearly 11 meters long and over 12 meters wide. It is divided in seven parts, with a front chamber, east and west wing rooms, the main coffin chamber, east and west side rooms, and a back storage chamber.
