Introduction to Meixi Memorial Archways (梅溪牌坊)

Located at Meixi Village, Qianshan Town, Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province, Meixi Memorial Archways was built in 1886, the 12th year of the reign of Emperor Guangxu in Qing Dynasty to memorize the great man Chen Fang.

In 1849, Chen Fang went to Hawaii to start his business. During the times in Hawaii, he even was appointed to be the Consular General for China in Hawaii and did a great contribution. In 1890, he came back to his hometown Zhuhai as a rich millionaire after having strived for business for several years. He then tried to help the poor and started his philanthropic projects. Therefore, he was praised by his fellow villagers, and he was honored by the government. The Emperor gave four tablets with the words “Generous, Charitable, Selfless and Kindhearted” for him and erected four archways. But now there are only three archways with multiple arches remain because the fourth one was destroyed during the Cultural Revolution.

The Meixi Memorial Scenic Area holds four main parts including the Meixi Archways Square, the Former Residence of Chen Fang, the Garden of Chen Family and the Tourist Service Center. As the best known archways in China, Meixi Memorial Archways is famous for its sort of western-style architecture. It has been a popular attraction for tourists coming to Zhuhai.
