About Jiefang Monument, Chongqing
In the heart of the centre of the city, which is the Jiefangbei Square, stands the Chongqing People’s Liberation Monument also known as the Jiefang Monument. The 27 metre tall monument has stood proud since 1945 commemorating the victory over the Japanese in the Second World War.
Originally, in 1940, the site was a wooden memorial commemorating Sun Yat-Sen who is considered as the Father of China. 5 years later, it was decided as the place to establish a monument celebrating the victory of World War II. The building has a winding staircase leading to the top. Today, the Jiefang monument is surrounded by the Jiefanbei plaza, which offers entertainment and accommodation to tourists, and has thousands of visitors every day.
The monument represents the pride of the city. The Jiefangbei plaza is a delight to explore with its numerous shopping avenues. The area is unique in its presentation – the old, proud monument amidst modern stores and styles speaks in volume the ability of China to combine its past and present with modernity and pride.
