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.

It is lit up at night.…

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.…
