As early as 1866, Zuo Zongtang and Shen Baozhen founded Fujian Shipyard here, which was the first professional machinery shipyard in modern China. From this, a series of activities such as building shipyards, building warships, making aircraft, running schools, attracting talents, sending schoolchildren abroad to study abroad were launched. Yanfu, Zhan Tianyou, Sazhenbing and Deng Shichang were trained and trained as representatives. A group of excellent modern Chinese industrial and technical personnel and outstanding naval officers. At the same time, Fujian shipbuilding pioneered the trend, boldly proposed "looking at the world with cold eyes", introduced advanced western science and technology, disseminated Chinese and Western culture, and promoted the process of China's modernization, which is known as the "living fossil" of modern Chinese history.

Prolific translator of Western works into classical Chinese

Yan Fu (1854.1.8-1921.10.27), formerly Zongguang and Yiling, was renamed and renamed later. He was an influential bourgeois Enlightenment thinker, translator and educator in the late Qing Dynasty. He was one of the "advanced Chinese" who sought truth from western countries in modern Chinese history.

Yan Fu was born in a doctor's family. In 1866, Yan Fu was admitted to Fuzhou Shipping School, where he studied English and modern natural science. He graduated with excellent grades five years later. From 1877 to 1879, Yan Fu and others were sent to Britain to study. They first went to the University of Portsmouth and then to the Greenwich Naval Academy. During his study abroad, Yan Fu became interested in British social politics, involved in a large number of bourgeois political academic theories, and especially appreciated Darwin's evolutionary theory.

His translation is different from Huxley's original works and Spencer's general view of evolution. In Tian Yan Lun, Yan Fu elaborated his viewpoint of saving the nation from extinction with the theory of biological evolution of "natural selection of things" and "survival of the fittest", and advocated encouraging people's strength, opening up people's wisdom, innovating people's morality, self-reliance and calling for saving the nation from extinction. The translation is concise and the standard of "faithfulness, expressiveness and elegance" is advocated. Host the National News.

Yan Fu was appointed president of Peking University by Yuan Shikai in 1912, which also shows Yan Fu's convincing and prominent position in the ideological and academic circles. At this time, Yan Fu's comparative view of Chinese and Western cultures matured, and began to enter the stage of self-reflection, tending to return to traditional culture. He feared that China's loss of its national "national characteristics" would "be like a fish out of water and empty, like a lame person taking abduction, such as shorter than the spiritual person's reliance on opium, which is said to be a loss of its nature," and "the loss of its nature has not lasted for a long time." Out of such a deeper concern about the future and destiny of the Chinese nation, Yan Fu once tried to integrate the liberal arts and Confucianism of Peking University into one, and to cure the old school entirely, "in order to keep Yi Lun's moral articles in the four or five thousand years of our country's saintly and legendary tradition intact."

He died on 27 October 1921 at the age of 68. His works include Yan Jidao's Poems and Notes. He was translated into Hou Guan Yan's Series of Penalties and Yan Yin's Series of Masterpieces.

English name: Jeme Tien Yow. He was China's first railway engineer, responsible for the construction of "Beijing-Zhangzhou Railway" and other projects, known as "the father of China's railway" and "the father of China's modern engineering". Zhan Tianyou was very interested in machines when he was a teenager. He often used clay to imitate various machine models with children in his neighborhood. Sometimes, he secretly took apart the self-ringing bell at home, played with and fumbled with its components, and raised some questions that adults could not answer. The villagers admired the child very much. In 1872, Zhan Tianyou, a twelve-year-old, went to Hong Kong to apply for the "Preparatory School for Young Children to Go Abroad" organized by the Qing Government. After the entrance examination, his father painted a pledge on a certificate stating "If there is a disease, life or death, each man will live in peace with his destiny". From then on, he left his parents and came to the United States to study with the ideal of learning Western "skills". In the United States, the students of the overseas preview class witnessed the great achievements of science and technology in North America and Western Europe, and praised the rapid development of machinery, trains, ships and telecommunications manufacturing industry. Some students were pessimistic about China's future, but Zhan Tianyou said with firm conviction: "In the future, China will also have trains and ships." With the belief of studying hard for the prosperity and strength of his motherland, he studied hard and graduated from New Haven School with outstanding achievements in 1877. In May of the same year, he was admitted to the Department of Civil Engineering of Yale University, specializing in railway engineering. In the four years of university, Zhan Tianyou studied hard, and ranked first in the graduation examination with outstanding results.

Pagoda Anchorage

Mawei Port, Fuzhou, at the confluence of the three rivers in the lower reaches of Minjiang River, has Luoxing Mountain, which used to be in the heart of the river. On the top of the mountain stands a tower, pillars of the sea and sky. This is the famous Rosing Tower at home and abroad. Luoxing Pagoda is an internationally recognized navigation mark, a gateway sign of Minjiang River, and has the reputation of "China Pagoda". The name of the world postal site is "Pagoda Anchorage". In the past few hundred years, letters from all over the world to Mawei can be sent by simply writing "China Tower".

It is said that one or two hundred years ago, a foreign ship went to the sea off Mawei, Fuzhou, and saw the Luoxing Tower from afar, and cheered, "China Tower". Previously, the internationally recognized translation (Amoy) was Fuzhou dialect. —— This shows that Fuzhou's contacts with the West are early.

Under the tower is Luoxing Park, beside which is the International Seafarers Club. Up to the top of the tower, the port and wharf, and the development zone are all in sight. On both sides of the river are ancient forts, which can be seen in the ancient battlefield of the fireworks-filled Sino-French campaign.

Luoxingta Mountain has now been opened into a park. On the West side, there are towers, and on the South side, there are pavilions. There are also Zhongsoutai, Mingchao Pavilion and Friendship Xuan in the garden. Crossing the archway at the population of the park, the garden is full of flowers and trees at four o'clock, and the scenery is pleasant. Several ancient banyan trees, close to each other, lush, like a green wall, surrounded by towering ancient pagodas. Pick up the steps from the tower, turn to the top of the tower, suddenly open the field of vision, relaxed and happy. Looking around, we can see the scenery of both sides of Minjiang River from a distance, and the new features of port construction from a close look. We can see all kinds of pictures with vivid colours. The water and sky are the same colour, the mountains are beautiful and the things are new.

Luoxing Tower Park is an integral part of Shipping Culture Theme Park. Located in Mawei Luoxing Mountain, the area is 2.33 hectares. At the foot of the mountain, along the Minjiang River, there are bars, fences, stacked rockeries and widely planted plants.

Rosingta Park

Located at the confluence of the three rivers in the lower reaches of Minjiang River in Fuzhou City, Luoxing Mountain stands on the top of a tower and pillars the sea and sky. This is the famous Rosing Tower at home and abroad.

There are towers and parks. Luoxing Pagoda was built in the Southern Song Dynasty. According to Wang Yingshan's Min Du Ji, a powerful man in Guangdong conspired to seize a beautiful young woman, Liu Qiniang, and first framed her husband and took him to Fujian. Liuqiniang was unyielding and came to Fujian with her husband. Unfortunately, her husband died on the way. She sold her family property and prayed for the blessings of her deceased husband. Here she built the tower. The original wooden pagoda was destroyed in the Ming Dynasty (1572-1620). At this time, Fuzhou's foreign trade is developed, and the port needs a sign. Tianqi 4 years (1624) was rebuilt in situ, with stone masonry, Pavilion structure, seven stories of anise, shrines inside and outside, with a diameter of 8.6 meters. Tashashi table, put a lamp on it, at night, the lights shine everywhere, guiding the boat. In the fifth year of Tongzhi reign of Qing Dynasty (1866), a ship administration was set up in Mawei. To protect the ancient pagoda from lightning strikes, ship administrators installed a large iron ball on the pagoda brake and inserted lightning rods (from the tip of the needle to the base of the pagoda 31.5), which connected iron bars to the bottom of the river. The iron was corroded for a long time and then blown away by typhoon. In 1656, Zheng Chenggong led the division to restore the Central Plains, stationed in Luoxing Pagoda, built earthcastles under the pagoda, and insisted on resisting the Qing Dynasty for one year. At the beginning of Qing Dynasty, on the mountain of Zhucheng, it was called Luoxing Tower City; setting up flood season, named Luoxing Tower flood season; taking tower as observation platform and Yandun (beacon tower). In modern times, the international legend has been a flourishing cross-three oceans (Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean, Atlantic) arrow (scissors) boat race, 11 participating boats competed in the waters below the tower. In 1884, during the Sino-French Majiang War, the officers and soldiers of the Qingshui Division launched a heroic struggle against the enemy. It was reinstalled in 1926. In 1964, the Fuzhou Municipal People's Government listed Luoxing Pagoda as the city's cultural relics protection unit to repair, repair large iron balls, re-install lightning rods, each layer with iron railings. In 1985, it was listed as a provincial cultural relics protection unit.

Majiang Maritime War Memorial

At the south foot of Mawei Mountains lies the Majiang Sea War Memorial Museum of China and France and the Modern Naval Museum of China. In the late Qing Dynasty, the Westernization Movement rose in China. Zuo Zongtang, governor of Fujian and Zhejiang, was sure to set up shipping administration in Mawei. Shen Baozhen, former governor of Jiangxi, was the first minister of shipping administration. China's first 1000-ton ship (Wannian Qing), China's first steel warship (Pingyuan), China's first seaplane, China's first fleet in modern times are all based on this. Shipbuilding School is the earliest military school in modern China. The Shipbuilding School nurtured a large number of talents such as Yan Fu, Deng Shichang and Zhan Tianyou. Three fifths of the officers of the modern Chinese Navy came from Ma Wei.

On August 23, 1884, the French invading fleet raided the Fujian Navy and provoked the Sino-French naval battle in the Majiang River. Because the Qing government compromised and dared not resist, the Fujian naval division rushed into battle. 796 officers and soldiers were killed in battle, and the whole army of Fujian naval division was destroyed. The sacrificed officers and soldiers of Fujian Marine Division were buried at the foot of Majie Mountain. In 1920, the Navy and the alumni of Shipping School raised funds from Beijing, Shanghai and Rong to establish the Majiang Zhaozhong Temple and the Majiang Sea War Memorial Hall in 1983. There are many historic sites about Fujian Shipping Administration in Mawei, including Shipping Administration Shipyard, Painting Academy, Bell Tower, No. 1 Dock, Zhaozhong Temple and so on. Majiang Maritime War Memorial Hall and Shipbuilding Complex are listed as key cultural relics protection units in China.

Zhao Zhong Temple

The Majiang Sea War Martyrs Tomb and Zhaozhong Temple in Fuzhou are located at the south foot of Maquan Mountain in Mawei. Due to the weakness of the Qing government, the Fujian naval divisions rushed to the battle. 796 officers and soldiers sacrificed. More than 400 martyrs were salvaged and buried in nine graves at the foot of Maqen Mountain. Two years later, the "Zhaozhong Temple" was built in the east of the tomb, and the cemetery was rebuilt in 1920, with nine tombs as a mound, and the Majiang Haicheng Memorial Hall was established.
