Monument to the People’s Heroes

 

The Monument to the People’s Heroes is a concrete structure in Shanghai, China. The structure is located 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 1990s to commemorate revolutionary martyrs, as well as those who have lost their lives fighting natural disasters.
