Guangzhou's Zero Point

Located in Center Square of the People's Park of Yuexiu District, the circular center is both a testimony to the 2,200-year history of the city of Guangzhou and a geographical original point of Guangzhou.

As the zero-mile spot of the city, Guangzhou's Zero Point is set at Southern Square of the People's Park which stands in front of Guangzhou Municipal People's Government. Its light was officially lit on October 21st, 2010. The sculpture of the zero point is cast with refined copper, the surface of which is carved with patterns of excavated relics of "Nanyue King Mausoleum", such as Dragon-Phoenix Jade and Immortals Rowing Boat. Walking around the zero point, you will vividly feel a heavy sense of history. 

Flower pots are placed around the zero point as railings. Do not cross over the railings and step on the zero point. Lights are lit for one hour at definite time every evening.
