Overview

Located by the foot of Bai Yun Hill (White Cloud Mountain), this tomb commemorates the 18,300 Chinese people who were killed during the China-Japan War. On November 21, 1894, the Japanese occupied Lushun, taking many innocent lives in the process. Their bodies were anonymously buried at the east slope of the hill. In 1896, the Qing repaired the burial site, erecting a temple and stone tablet memorial, calling it the Thousand Honest People's Tomb. In 1905, Japan invaded Lushun again and took down the tomb. In 1922, the monument was erected again. Finally, in 1963, it was placed under protection as a cultural relic.
