Shizimen Ancient Battlefield

This site witnessed the cruel battle between the Southern Song Dynasty soldiers and the Yuan Dynasty armies. In 1278, the army of the Southern Song Dynasty under Zhao Shi fled here and fought to the death against Yuan Dynasty soldiers. That battle was both a rare naval battle and a great victory for the small Southern Song imperial court. Hundreds of thousands people died in the battle, leaving a tragic and moving mark on local history. After that, this ancient battle field has attracted countless people to ponder on the past. The local government has not over-developed the site, so visitors can enjoy the original scenery.
