The capital of China under six dynasties, Nanjing has a fascinating history and many beautiful sights. Thanks to Prof Tianqun Pan and the Philosophy Department at the University of Nanjing for their hospitality in December 2014, and to Zhengyuan Yang for his expert guidance. The photos themselves take in Sheshan Qixia Temple and views from Qixia Mountain, followed by John Rabe's statue and Nanjing University's original downtown campus. The next sequence features walks on Zhongshan Mountain and parkland, from Sun Yat Sen's mausoleum to the Ming Dynasty tomb and museum. We also visited the Song Meiling villa, where I was too enchanted to take any photos! The last sequence reflects the area around Confucius Temple, the Qinhuai River, and the 110-meter long pair of dragons adorning its bank.
