Lin Wenying Monument

Lin Wenying was the major figure on Hainan during the Xin Hai Revolution. It is located on Wenzhuang Road. Wenzhuang Road runs between Qiongzhou Avenue and North Zhongshan Road. It is an easy walk from the Haikou East Bus Station. The monument is surrounded by a fence. To get to it you have to go around the side. There is a gate, but it doesn’t seem to get locked.

The Xinhai Revolution or Hsinhai Revolution , also known as the 1911 Revolution or the Chinese Revolution, began with the Wuchang Uprising on October 10, 1911 and ended with the abdication of Emperor Puyi on February 12, 1912. The primary parties to the conflict were the Imperial forces of the Qing Dynasty (1644 to1911), and the revolutionary forces of the Chinese Revolutionary Alliance (Tongmenghui). The revolution is so named because 1911 is a Xinhai Year in the sexagenary cycle of the Chinese calendar.

The Xinhai Revolution was motivated by anger at corruption in the Qing government, by frustration with the government’s inability to restrain the interventions of foreign powers, and by majority Han Chinese resentment toward a government dominated by an ethnic minority (the Manchus).
