The Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall is located within the Temple of Azure Clouds (Biyunsi) at the foot of the eastern slopes of Xiangshan (Fragrant Hill) park in the Western Hills, just over 10 kilometers from downtown Beijing.

The Temple of Azure Clouds is a Buddhist temple some 600 years old. It is comprised of four large halls, the innermost of which is now the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall. Before 1949, the hall contained nothing more than a portrait of Sun Yat-sen (1862-1925) and it was not until 1954 that the government renovated the building and enlarged the display to its present form.

There are exhibition rooms on each side of the Memorial Hall. The first displays photographs of Sun Yat-sen in his youth and the second shows his activities during the period of democratic revolution.
