Tomb of Hairui: This tomb
rests at Binya Village, Xiuying
District, Haikou. Born in Qiongshan,
Hairui (1514 - 1587) was an upright
minister during the mid-Ming Dynasty.
He was famous for his righteousness
and royalty. Later he was being
persecuted and was out of the
emperor s favor and was exiled
to Hainan Island. After his death,
those people who admire his good
works build a tomb for him. The
tomb was built in 1589, the 17th
year of Emperor Wanli s reign
during the Ming Dynasty. In front
of the main gate of the cemetery
stands a high memorial archway
on which four big red characters,
"Righteousness in Eastern
Guangdong (Yuedong Zhengqi)",
were horizontally cut in intaglio.
The 100-plus-meter-long passage
to the grave is exclusively paved
with white marble. And the exhibition
room helps deepen the tourists
understanding of this outstanding
official in Chinese history. During
the Cultural Revolution, the tomb
was nearly torn down but now has
been tastefully restored to its
Qiongtai Academy: Located
on Wenzhuang Road in Qiongshan
City, the Qiongtai Academy was
established in commemoration of
Qiu Jin, believed to be the most
brilliant scholar in Hainan and
a renowned Ming Dynasty academic.
Construction began in the 40th
year of the reign of Kangxi in
Qing Dynasty (1705). The two-storey
main building is made of brick
and wood and is rich in traditional
ethnic characteristics. The well-preserved
academy is now the site of Qiongtai
Teachers Training School. The
lavishly inscribed pillars inside
the academy, together with its
green surroundings, transform
the area a peaceful and secluded
spot. The academy became celebrated.
