    Introduction

    Founded in 1924, Chunxi Road is located in the heart of Chengdu. It is a representative and bustling commercial pedestrian street in Chengdu, where the commerce and trade industry is extremely developed. In 1927, when the Northern Expedition began, Sichuan announced that the "Easy Flag" had separated from the Beiyang government, supported the Nationalist government, and created a standing bronze statue of Mr. Sun Yat-sen in short clothes on the "Chunxi Road Construction Monument". The copper material required for this bronze statue is more than 1000 jin. It was donated by Deng Xihou, commander of the 28th Army of the Sichuan Army, and Liu Wenhui, the commander of the 24th Army, and was cast by the Chengdu Mint. Due to the rush of time, it was hastily cast in January 1928. The top of the stele is engraved with "the will of the prime minister", and the four sides of the stele are engraved with 8 characters of "the journey of the road, the world is the public". On January 30, Commanders Deng and Liu presided over the unveiling ceremony. In 1943, Yu Zhongying served as the mayor of Chengdu. Due to the distortion of the original statue, Liu Kaiqu, a well-known sculptor, asked the well-known sculptor Liu Kaiqu to reshape the seated statue of Sun Yat-sen holding a scroll for people to admire. The bronze statue of Sun Yat-sen, located in Zhongshan Square, Chunxi Road, has a base of red granite and a height of 1.8 meters. Sun Yat-sen is wearing a robe and a jacket, sitting on the Taishi chair inlaid with the plum blossom pattern, holding the unfolded "Outline of Founding of the People's Republic of China" in his left hand.

In 2001, the municipal government rebuilt Chunxi Road Commercial Pedestrian Street and rebuilt Zhongshan Square, which covers an area of about 10 acres.
