The Bayi Square (literally known as August 1st Sqaure) in the southern part were built to commemorate the Nanchang uprising that happened in August 1 1927. It was here that The Kuomintang Nationalist Party established a "Revolutionary Committee" to plan the spark that was expected to ignite a widespread peasant uprising. Later, it was this uprising that paved way for the formation of People’s Republic and hence the political foundation of modern china.
About 78,000sqmt large the square was constructed in 2002 and is now the place of gathering for a lot of political and cultural festivals. It is also the second largest square in china after the Tianamen square in Beijing. A public favourite, the square has a musical fountain installed near the south where a lot of people gather during the summer nights for a cool outdoor experience.
