Beijing to Shanghai Sights

Rain Flower Terrace and Martyrs Memorial (Yühuātái, lièshì língyuán)

Updated 05/28/2013

Fodor's Review

This scenic area gets its name from the legend of Yunzhang, a 15th-century Buddhist monk who supposedly pleased the gods so much with his recitation of a sutra that they showered flowers on this spot. It was put to a grim purpose in the 1930s, when the Nationalists executed thousands of their left-wing political enemies here. In 1950, after the founding of the People's Republic of China, it was transformed into a memorial park furnished with statues of heroic martyrs, soaring obelisks, and a museum.
