What people are saying:

Zhazidong is located in the foothills of Gele Mountain in Chongqing City. It was originally a small coal kiln that was mined manually. It was named after less coal and more slag. It is surrounded by mountains on three sides and a ditch on one side. In 1943, after the Bai Mansion was changed to the "Sino-American Cooperation Institute", military unification spies forcibly occupied the Zhazidong coal mine, set up a detention center, and imprisoned revolutionaries. In 1956, the site of Zhazidong Cave was designated as a provincial-level key cultural relic, and in 1988, it was designated as a national key cultural relic, open to the public for free.

Additional Information


Zhazi Cave, located at the foot of Gele Mountain in Chongqing, was a famous site of the Communist Revolution. With mountains on three sides, the location was well-protected. It was once a small coal mine. It was known for a dearth of coal and an abundance of coal slag. In 1938 the Kuomintang rebuilt the mine as a secret prison, where Communist revolutionaries were imprisoned and tortured. One of the most famous martyrs of this prison is Jiang Zhuyun (also known as Sister Jiang). The prison inside Zhazi Cave is divided into an interior section and an exterior section. The interior section includes 16 cells for male inmates and 2 cells for female inmates. The exterior section was used as an office and also had torture rooms.
