Within this large cemetery are laid to rest the remains of Homer Lea, an American advisor to Sun Yat-sen. The GPS coordinates on the Map page (the tab above, next to Info) mark the spot. Also in this cemetery is the burial site of academic and politician Sun Fo.

To get here, take the MRT to Shipai Station, then exit. To the right, across the street from the station, is a bus stop. Take the No. 508 to the second-to-the-last stop on its route up the hill. You'll know you're in the right place because you'll see a large geothermal valley to the right. Get off, and then cross the street and walk along Quanyuan Rd. Almost immediately, the road forks. Take the left fork, and walk up the curving road to the cemetery.

Sun Fo's grave is the first grave of significant size you'll encounter on the way up. Homer Lea's grave is farther along on the main road, past the pagoda, and past a group of tombs on the right. After that, you'll see a stairway in the wall on the right. It leads to Lea's grave.
