Zhao Zhong Ancestral Hall and the Tomb of Martyers in Majiang River Sea Warfare between China and France stand in the southeastern foot of Maxianshan Moutain in Mawei district. On August 23th,, 1884, French warships raided Fujian Navy Division which fomented the Majiang River Sea Warfare. Instead of resisting, the Qing government bowed like slaves to the French and compromised. As a result, the Fujian Navy Division fought without full preparation and 796 officers and men died. Among them, 400 odd martyrs were retrieved from the sea and separately buried in 9 tombs at the foot of Maxianshan Mountain. Zhao Zhong Ancestral Hall was built east of the tombs two years later. The tombs were rebuilt in 1920 and the 9 tombs were united as one grave. In 1983, the ancestral hall was rebuilt and the Majiang Sea City Memorial was founded.
