Description

The Monument to the People's Heroes 上海市人民英雄纪念塔 is a concrete structure in Shanghai, China. The structure is located at the north end of the Bund, at the confluence of the Suzhou Creek and the Huangpu River, within the grounds of the Huangpu Park. The structure was built by the Shanghai municipal government in the 1993 to commemorate revolutionary martyrs, as well as those who have lost their lives fighting natural disasters. The structure stands 24 metres (79 ft) tall, and is built in the stylised shape of three rifles leaning against each other to show respect to those who fought for their homeland.
