Purple Mountain Observatory contains astronomical instruments dating back to the Ming Dynasty. The modern observatory began operating in 1934 and is still actively involved in research today.
For most, a visit to the observatory will compliment a hike or ride up or down Purple Mountain. Once you have arrived, it only takes about 30-45 minutes to observe the instruments and enjoy the view from the observatory.
