Yu Hua Tai, Nanjing
(3.9/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Densely covered with trees, Yu Hua Tai features many monuments commemorating Chinese revolutionaries and opponents of the Chiang Kai-shek regime. This popular hiking location became the site of execution of nearly 100,000 communists in 1927. Nowadays, an obelisk inscribed with words of communist leader Mao Zedong--praising the heroes of the revolution--stands out from the highest hill of the park. You'll see nine human figures carved in stone, representing all social layers, including peasants, workers, intellectuals, and politicians fighting for decent life. A museum near the memorial displays exhibits relating to people who died fighting for their higher cause.

  • It's good to walk in the garden, and remember the revolutionaries in 1949. Magnificent statues, birds, small places with poems Naples in Chinese, very very nice!

  • Monument or tomb for a Memorial, such as Warrior surrounded by lush site sacrificed in war and former Mayor of the dot. I think what good all around because the area is large and pretty time consuming, but the hilltop site is much better spent about half a day, to explore.

  • 这个经典离我住的地方很远~我觉得这更像一个公园~这里是烈士陵园,可以看看自然景色,景区很大,需要登山,不推荐给老年人和孩子~
