China on Saturday reopened the memorial hall on the historic Nanchang uprising, which produced the first army under the command of the Communist Party of China (CPC) that eventually evolved into the People's Liberation Army.

The uprising in Nanchang, capital of east China's Jiangxi Province, led by the CPC, took place on August 1, 1927, now remembered as the PLA's founding day.

The renovation of the memorial had lasted for more than a year at a cost of about 150 million yuan (19.7 million U.S. dollars). The exhibition area is increased to 3,625 square meters. Multimedia technology is widely used to reproduce the uprising and the development of the PLA. Link
