Yu Hua Tai, Nanjing

3.9
#5 of 31 in Parks in Nanjing
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.

  • The place is hard to find. It will take more than 10 minutes to walk through the exit of the central Gate station. Yuhuatai is the whole scene, there are all kinds of statues, memorial Monument, Memorial Museum, advice to stay at least two or three hours to walk a whole circle.
