Zhazi Cave

Last updated by david at 2013-11-18

Zhazi Cave is located at the foot of Gele mountain in Ciqikou and Wulingguan, suburban area of Chongqing. Zhazi Cave used to been a coalmine founded in 1920 by a businessman named Chen Erchang. Since 1938, it became a clandestine prison for Kuomintang to lock up and persecute revolutionaries. During the war, lots of heroic, solemn and stirring stories happened in the prison. Those stories were really very touching that they encouraged the patriotic sentiment among the Chinese. In 1943 Kuomintang founded an intelligence agency: Sino-American Co-operation office. Then the Bai Gongguan, another clandestine prison, became the office building of Sino-American Co-operation office. Revolutionaries were transferred from Bai Gongguan to Zhazi Cave prison. Among those revolutionaries are the likes of the Chinese famous hero Jiang Zujun, who was honored as Jiangjie. She was also sentenced to imprisonment in the Zhazi Cave.

The day before the new Chinese government was founded in 1949, secret agents of Kuomintang set fire to Zhazi Cave prison, it was a pity that only 15 Revolutionaries survived from the fire. Zhazi Cave, as a political prison, was filled pain and death at that time, yet it was also a place where heroes were produced. It is a place that witnessed the Chinese people devoting their lives to their political belief.

The two High Tech Zones have many factories that are open to tours which many foreigners are curious about -- making shoes, clothes, high tech electronics, cards, batteries, and building houses that are less than 1/6 of the cost per square foot of places like Guangzhou and Shenzhen. When was the last time you saw good quality homes for sale at 3000 to 4000 per square meter. Shenzhen people, Hong Kong people, Dongguan people and Guangzhou People are buying second, third and fourth homes for cash in preparation for the new train from Zhenzhen late this fall or early spring next year when Huizhou will be connected to Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Guangdong and points beyond. I recently went on a 4 day weekend from Huizhou to Shenzhen and then from Shenzhen to Changsha by high speed train in 2 hours and 45 minutes!!! It is only 3 hours from Shenzhen to Xiamen by high speed train as well.
