This monument sits at the northern end of the Bund and is meant to remember those who fought for the communist revolution. At the base there is a sunken section with good sandstone carvings depicting the struggles to establish the communist government.It is a pleasant area that overlooks a bend in the river and you can't miss it if you are walking all the way to the end of the riverside walk on the old town side of the Bund. It is lit up at night.

Monument to the People’s Heroes
There is a simple tall tower erected in Huangpu Park at the northern end of Bund alongside River Huangpu towards Waibaidu Bridge which is assigned as Monument to the People’s Heroes or Shanghai People Yingxiong Memorial in the line of another monument of the same name erected in Tiananmen Square in Beijing. This tower is erected as memorial to those soldiers and heroes who laid down their lives in the Second Opium War (1856-60) imposed by the allied powers of England, France and America against the Chinese to sell opium in China forcibly in return for silk, tea and porcelain.

A great focal point that rises to the heavens.
This memorial recognizing their heroes is very striking at night.

On the northern part of the Bund, near Suzhou Creek, is the Monument to the People's Heroes located, a beautiful concrete structure, surrounded by a circular wall with sculpted Images. The structure was built to commemorate revolutionary martyrs, as well as Those Who Have Lost Their Lives fighting natural disasters. The sculpted Images on the wall are very similar to the socialist art forms That we know from the Soviet Union.

The monument provides a marvelous view of the river and the New Town. It’s located at the end of the Bund river walk. The carvings below trace local history and extoll the struggles and rise of the Communist Party.

It is a pleasant stroll to walk around this monument. Walk around the top, which has great views of Lujiazui, as well as down the ramp. Take care to have a good look at all the murals - there are plenty of stories there. It is currently lit up on red.

This 79-foot-high obelisk commemorates those who helped to free China from foreign occupation and those who died fighting natural disasters. The stylized hunk of concrete went up in 1993 and represents three rifles leaning against each other. I found the nearby panorama of Pudong across the river to be much more compelling. I could barely make out a few carvings of Shanghai's history on the wall by a curving ramp that descends from the monument. That's because the ramp had been closed due to construction work and no one was allowed below ground level.

A big concrete plaza surrounds the monument, which adds nothing to the scene. Apparently myriad Chinese practice tai chi there in the morning, but I visited in early afternoon. Luckily, I did not come to this portion of Huangpu Park specifically to see the monument. Instead, I had been walking along the river promenade by the Bund and had reached its northern border here.

The Communist government of China thought it was a good idea to put up a large obelisk monument to honor their revolution at the far end of the Bund. It’s nice to see at night as you need to traverse most of the Bund to get there. Yippee.

The monument, a simple concrete structure rising some 80 feet, stands at the north end of the riverside Bund. Built 25 years ago, the tribute to heroes is in the shape of three rifles leaning against each other, meeting at the top. At night, the monument is bathed in white light, in stark contrast to the glitzy lighting effects that mark the Pudong skyline across the river.
