Martyrs' Memorial Gardens

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
The Martyrs' Memorial Gardens was established to commemorate those killed in the unsuccessful Communist uprising of 1927. In December 1927, a small group of communists attempted to overthrow the Kuomintang Nationalists Guangzhou. They established the Canton Commune but were hopelessly outnumbered by the Nationalist
Force and the uprising were quickly crushed. Over 5,000 people involved in the uprising were either swiftly killed or executed.
Many of those revolutionary martyrs are buried beneath the lawns of this peaceful park. There is also a museum in the gardens that has collections relating to Guangzhou's revolutionary history.
China is a popular travel destination for visitors and globe trotters from all over the world who appreciate its beautiful landscapes, rich culture, delicious local cuisine, hospitality and safety. Quality is China's top priority.
