Yu Hua Tai, Nanjing

(140+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
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.

  • 这是南京的一个爱国主义教育基地,在学校组织春游或秋游,一般都会选择这个景点。要是说娱乐,那就不建议来这里了,这里是一个感受革命教育的红色景点。在抗战时期的许多英烈事迹都能看到。向我们伟大的祖国致敬,向许许多多为了保卫祖国而牺牲的英烈致敬。  more »
