    Guangzhou Insurrectional Martyr Cemetery Park was built in 1954 to commemorate martyrs who died bravely and honorably during the Guangzhou Insurrectional led by the communist Party of China in December 1927. In May 1958, this park was opened to the public to educate the public as an exemplary base for national patriotism education, to promote tourism and to protect the cultural relics of the Guangdong province.

    It is a big park with a total area of 186,000 square meters. It is divided into two zones, the memorial and the garden.

    The memorial park zone is amazed with the Guangzhou Communists' Uprising Monument. Other symbolic attractions include Main Entrance "Gate" Memorial Avenue, Tomb of the Martyrs of Guangzhou Commune, Four Martyrs Tomb, Comrade Ye Jiangting Monument, and etc.

    The garden has amidst lawns and lakes stand the "Bleed Sacrified Xuanyuan" Pavilion, Sino-North Korea Friendship Blood Sacrified Pavilion and Sino-Soviet Friendship Blood Sacrificed Pavilion. The greenary park is commonly used by the local residents for different recreation purposes like dancing, execising and socialising.

    Good To Know: Don't miss the Guanzhou Museum of Modern History on the west side of the park.

    About 4km/2.5mi east of the city centre, on Zhongshan Lu, a 26ha/64 acre cemetery was laid out in 1957 for the victims of the Canton uprising which was led by the Communist party in 1927. The 5700 people shot by the Guomindang government are now buried in a tumulus. In addition the memorial park also contains a pavilion (1957) dedicated to Sino-Soviet friendship and one (1964) to Sino-Korean friendship. These are intended as a reminder that Russians and Koreans also lost their lives in the uprising.

    Open: 8am-7pm. Admission: RMB3.
