The Grand Funeral

On 12 March 1925, Dr Sun Yat-sen passed away in Beijing. His coffin was temporarily kept in Biyun Temple in Beijing while the Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum was under construction in Mount Zijin, Nanjing. The Republic's government held a Grand Funeral for Dr Sun as soon as the basic construction of the mausoleum was completed in 1929. His coffin was transferred from Beiping (present-day Beijing) to Nanjing. Dr Sun was officially buried on 1 June of the same year. This video recorded the solemn ceremony of the Grand Funeral, during which nationals paid their respects to Dr Sun.
