Ceremonies were held on Sunday to commemorate the 92nd anniversary of the death of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, a renowned statesman who led the revolution that ended imperial rule in China.

Representatives from all walks of life attended a ceremony in Zhongshan Park, named after Sun, in Beijing. A moment of silence was observed before attendees showed their respect to Sun by bowing three times in front a statue of Sun.

The ceremony was presided over by Liu Fan, vice chairman of the Revolutionary Committee of the Chinese Kuomintang Central Committee.

Also on Sunday, local officials and residents of east China's Jiangsu Province marked the day at Sun's mausoleum in Nanjing, the province's capital city, honoring his achievements and role in the revolution.

Sun was born in 1866 and is known to the Chinese people as a “great revolutionary and statesman” for his leading role during the 1911 Revolution, which ended more than 2,000 years of feudal rule in China.

Sun died on March 12, 1925, in Beijing.
