Peasant Movement Training Institute

Introduction

The Peasant Movement Training Institute was set up in a 14th century Confucian temple and now the site on Zhongshan Lu commemorates Guangzhouís revolutionary past.

In 1924 the founders of the Chinese Communist Party set up the institute to train young idealists from all over China who then went out to educate the masses in rural China. Some of the famous figures in the Party lectured here, including Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai.

The institute was closed in 1926 as the relationship between the Nationalists and Communists disintegrated. Many former students were killed during the failed 1927 uprising and are remembered in the Martyrs Memorial Garden

The Peasant Movement Training Institute was opened as a commemorative site in the 50s and the lecture rooms and dormitories of the young revolutionaries have been recreated.
