Pathway to 72 Huanghuagang Martyrs' Tomb

The pathway that leads from the busy Xianlie Road in the City of Guangzhou to the solemn Tomb of the Seventy Two Revolutionary Martyrs of the Huanghuagang Uprising at the top of the Yellow Flower Mound is long, straight and wide. The failed urban insurrection, which broke out on 27 April, 1911, was first secretly planned in a house at Penang's No.120, Armenian Street, in the presence of Dr. Sun Yat Sen (1866-1925) who was then on the run worldwide as an exile and opponent to China's last feudal dynasty, Qing (1644-1911).
