The hall and its surrounding gardens occupy an entire city block. The latter are well used by picnickers, kite flyers, break dancers and the early morning tai chi crowd, while the cavernous interior serves as a cultural centre with regular exhibitions and performances. There's a large, though sparsely informative, museum on the life of SYS, the founder of modern China.

Though designed in a similar palace-style as the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, this hall (finished earlier in 1972) is largely considered a decent piece of architecture, blending modernity with tradition without a fetish for 'classical' decorative features.
