Sichuan Army Anti-Japanese Fallen Monument, located outside the east gate of People's Park in Qingyang District, Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China, is the work of the famous Chinese sculptor Liu Kaiqu, which means to commemorate the great contribution made by the Sichuan Army to the Anti-Japanese War, the monument was originally officially completed on July 7, 1944, erected in the Chengdu East Gate Cave, that is, the starting point of the Sichuan Army's anti-Japanese journey out of Sichuan. Later, during the Cultural Revolution in the 60s of the 20th century, the CCP accused him of being a Kuomintang soldier and was smashed and destroyed. After 1985, the Chengdu Municipal Government invited Liu Kaiqu, the original author, who was over 80 years old at the time, as a guide, to reshape the monument according to its original appearance and enlargement, and place it in the center of the intersection of Wannian Field on the second ring road of Dongmen, and officially cut the ribbon on August 15, 1989. On August 15, 2007, due to the traffic renovation at the Wannian Field intersection, the monument was officially moved to the east gate of Chengdu People's Park, which was also the place where the 1937 Sichuan Army went out of Sichuan to resist Japan.
