The Monument to the People's Heroes, three gun-like towers in Shanghai's Huangpu Park, was built in the 1990s by the Shanghai municipal government in memory of the Chinese martyrs of the Opium War, the May 4th Movement and the War of Liberation as well as those who have lost their lives fighting natural disasters.
The monument, also called the Chopsticks Monument, was the first large scale memorial built in New China.
Towering 10 stories high, its northern facade is dominated by the inscription, "Eternal Glory to the People's Heroes" (in Mao Zedong’s handwriting).
