Additional Information

Introduction

Xiongzhenguan military barrier is located in the foothills of the junction of Yun'ao and Shenzhen, south of Shenao Town, Nan'ao County, Shantou City, Guangdong Province. Xiongzhengguan’s terrain is relatively dangerous. It was the southern barrier of the Shen'ao Military Government, and it was also a key strategic point for any military campaign in the region. According to history, during the Qing Dynasty Jiajing period, the Zhejiang commander, Qi Jiguang, went to Nan'ao to pacify Wuping, and won a key victory in Xiongzhen. This campaign involved military personnel from the two provinces of Fujian and Guangdong, and was a famous historical victory. The fame of the Xiongzhenguan arose from this event.
