On April 27,1911(March 29, Lunar year Xinhai), Tongmenghui, a revolutionary Organization, led by Dr. Sun Yat-sen launched an uprising to overthrow the federal Qing dynasty to build a new democratic country, but unfortunately the effort failed . Seventy-two martyrs were found and buried here in the Huanghua Hillock. The cemetery was begun in 1912 and finished in 1921. (It was later determined that there were 86 martyrs, including 30 who were overseas Chinese.)

In front of the Huang Hua Gang park gate, there is a stately stele inscribed four Chinese characters “Hao Qi Chang Cun” (the justice lasts forever) written by Sun Yat-sen. Inside the park, there are a number of erect green and verdant pines and cypresses standing in order, representing the undaunted spirits of those martyrs at all time. The tomb of those 72 martyrs quietly stood on the top of the hill, rooting into the land they loved deeply. Behind the tomb, there is a stele for merits and virtues, on the top of which is a statue for Goddess of Liberty, expressing the revolutionary spirits of fighting for the freedom and equality for our motherland. Beside the tomb, there are some vigorous pines planted by Mr. Sun Yat-sen himself.

Full of green trees and blooming chrysanthemums, this park is a well-known tourist resort in Guangzhou, famous for its tranquil environment and its buildings of grandeur and sacredness. In 1985, it was elected to be one of the eight new landscapes of Guangzhou, named "Chrysanthemums- A noble spirit". In July 2002, it was again evaluated as one of the Hot 8 scenic spots of Guangzhou in the new century, named "Holy chrysanthemums in a bright moon". The park also contains Huanghua Well, Huanghua Pavilion, Silent Pond, Square Pond, Octagonal Pavilion, Huanghua gardens, tennis courts and other scenic spots and activities services.

  1. Despite its name, there were more than 72 such martyrs in the uprising that was the second last before the fall of the Qing Dynasty. A casual short stroll from our Holiday Inn City Centre Hotel brought us to this sprawling park. The January coolness allowed us to enjoy the park very much, which was not crowded. Besides the main tomb, there are other mausoleums of leading figures of the Nationalist uprising. We observed several visitors bowing to pay tribute to those who sacrificed their life for the revolution.

  2. If you have lots of time in yr agenda to visit important sights of Guangzhou,then this park must be included in yr itinerary to see as there are many good historical monuments&buildings in this huge park.Walking down through very nice and well maintained park with nice flowers and trees is another feeling in this part of the city.Here you can take nice photos,too.
