Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park
Storm in Hong Kong
Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park located at the seaside of Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong. In the park lawn, there is a Statue of Sun Yat-sen with a height of 4.5 metres and a Paifang titled “The World Belongs to All”.
During his youth, Dr. Sun Yat-sen was educated in Hong Kong. In order to represent the origin of revolutionary thinking, a clock tower was built based on the Main Building of the University of Hong Kong. The five bronze bells symbolize the five powers enshrined in the Five-Power Constitution Dr Sun proclaimed in 1921.
Founding Father’s Sea Conference
According to historical records, Dr. Sun Yat-sen was persecuted by the Manchu Qing government for starting a revolution. On many trips between Hong Kong and Mainland, he could only meet his supporters and revolutionary comrades on board ships.
The dock where the ships were moored, the Triangular Pier, is the present location of Sun Yat-sen Memorial Park.
