Introduce

Sicao Artillery Fort(四草砲台)was built during the Opium War(鴉片戰爭) of 1840 during the reign of the Daoguang Emperor in the Qing Dynasty. Together, with Anping Fort, one on the right and one left, it protected the Anping and Taijiang areas. The fort was initially a temporary gun platform but later a solid granite outer wall was erected, while an inner wall was built using pebbles. The fort wall has 13 round gun holes; the wall is located next to present-day Zhenhai Elementary School; covered in banyan roots, it is now part of the school’s perimeter wall.
