      Zhou Enlai Memorial Hall, located in Tao Hua Yin outside the north gate of Huaian
City, Jiangsu Province, was completed construction on January 6, 1992. Deng Xiaoping
inscribed its name, and Jiang Zemin, Li Peng, Li Xiannian and Yang Shangkun all
inscribed for it. Zhou Enlai Memorial Hall is a large memorial hall built to commemorate
Zhou Enlai, the first primer of the People’s Republic of China, a towering monument to
show the demeanor of Zhou Enlai as a great man of the time. The former residence of
Zhou Enlai, located in Consort Prince Lane in the northwestern corner of Huaian, Jiangsu
Province, was formally opened to the public on March 5, 1979. On December 11, 1984,
Deng Xiaoping inscribed “Former Residence of Zhou Enlai”. In January 1988, it was
announced by the State Council as a historical site under national key protection. The old
site of Zhou Enlai’s school in his childhood was where Zhou Enlai lived and studied during
