Fodor's Review

In a prelude to the successful revolution of 1911, a group of revolutionaries staged the Guangzhou armed uprising, only to be defeated and executed by the authorities. Of those killed, 72 were buried here. Their memorial, finished in 1921, incorporates a mixture of international symbols of freedom and democracy, including replicas of the Statue of Liberty.
