This is the pride of Guangzhou people and the pride of Sanyuanli people. Although the place is not very big, many people from Sanyuanli Village come to worship every year.More
Sanyuanli is a small village near the north of Guangzhou. In May 1841, British troops occupying the Canton square fort looted property and raped women in Sanyuanli. The local people rose up to resist and killed several British troops. Subsequently, the masses of 103 villages near Sanyuanli surrounded Sifang Fort and lured the enemy to Niulangang, Sanyuanli. At that time, it coincided with the downpour. The British guns were dumb, and the people armed with knives, spears, and hoes took advantage of the momentum to attack. After the arrival of British reinforcements, they rescued the besieged British army. The anti-British struggle in Sanyuanli was the first spontaneous and large-scale struggle of the Chinese people to resist foreign aggression in modern history. It demonstrated the Chinese people's patriotic spirit of defying violence and resisting foreign enemies.
