The Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall (Chinese: 中山纪念堂; pinyin: Zhōngshān Jìniàn Táng) is an octagon-shaped building in Guangzhou, Guangdong, China. The hall was designed by Lu Yanzhi and was built with funds raised by local and overseas Chinese people in memory of Sun Yat-sen. Construction work commenced in 1929 and completed in 1931. The hall is a large octagonal structure with a span of 71 meters without pillars, housing a large stage and seats 3,240 people.
Having been severely damaged it was repaired and improved several times until 1998, when it was comprehensively upgraded to its present-day condition. A statue of Sun Yat-sen was erected in front of the main entrance.
