Fenghuang Mt Martyrs Cemetery
A monument, poem tablet, memorial archway, tombstones, and pavilions comprise Fenghuang Mt Martyrs Cemetery at the southwest foot of Fenghuang Mt in Dongkeng Village, Xiangzhou District.
There names of more than 120 patriots who were sacrificed between 1937 and 1949 are inscribed on the stones. They came from the Fenghuang Mt area that includes what are now Tangjiawan, Qianshan, Nanping, Wanzai, Xiangzhou, Jida, and Gongbei. The inscriptions memorialize their heroic deeds during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression and War of Liberation.
Tombstones for another 15 martyrs who died during the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea and Counterattack Against Vietnam in Self-Defense were added to the cemetery in 2008. They were paid for by many warm-hearted enterprises and individuals.
The cemetery covers 17,692 sqm (4.37 acres) and is a Party history and patriotism education base and an immovable cultural relic of Xiangzhou District.
