There is once a beautiful story about the name. A Buddhist monk once spoke to a crowd there and his words were so pious that they touched heaven, flowers fell from heaven like raindrops (Yu Hua). The colorful stones in water are called Yu Hua Shi, which means raindrop flowers.

Yuhuatai Memorial Park of Revolutionary Martyrs is a park and tourist site in the Yuhuatai District of Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, China. The name Yuhuatai comes from yu (rain), hua (flower), tai (platform). A prominent feature of the park is a statue of nine figures.

However, In 1927, it became Kuomintang army's execution ground, where Chinese Communists were executed.


What to See

The huge stone structures of 9 human figures that represent politicians, workers, peasants and the intelligentsia-the society that used to fight and die for revolution.

The places where communists have been executed are specially marked out.

An obelisk with carved words of Mao Zedong about immortality of heroes of revolution.

The Memorial is completed by a historical museum, which exhibits unique material about the life of people who perished for the Revolution.
