3.jpgFrom a little spark may burst a mighty flame. The Gutian Congress Memorial Hall is located at Gutian Town of Shanghang County in Longyan, and it was formerly the Ancestral Hall of Liao Family (also known as Wanyuan Ancestral Hall) built in 1848.

The site is a typical courtyard building facing west, divided into forecourt, antechamber, patio and back hall along the axis. The back hall was the venue for Gutian Congress, and the left wing room was used as office room for Mao Zedong and Chen Yi while the right wing room for Zhu De as office room.

On December 28-29, 1929, Mao Zedong, Zhu De and Chen Yi held the 9th meeting of the Communist Party of China at Shuguang Primary School, i.e. the famous Gutian Congress. Mao Zedong, Zhu De and Chen Yi gave speech on the meeting and the Gutian Congress Resolution, also titled On Correcting Mistaken Ideas drafted by Mao Zedong was passed.
