The Cenotaph - Memorial Venue

This monument is a famous landmark in Hong Kong.
It was constructed in 1923 to commemorate the dead in the First and Second World War that served in Hong Kong, including the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force.

It is an exact replica of the Cenotaph on Whitehall in London, UK, except that this one in Hong Kong has eight Chinese characters on it.
The Chinese characters, which mean "May their martyred souls be immortal and their noble spirits endure", were added to commemorate all victims, especially for those who fight for Hong Kong.

This place is also the venue of the Remembrance Sunday observance in Hong Kong.
A number of government officials, representatives of different religions and representatives of veterans will also attend.

To reach this place, exit off Central MTR Station Exit J3.
Once you get out of the station, you know you are at the right place.
