Former site of the second regiment headquarters of Guangxi’s land reform regiment
According to local villagers, at the end of the Ming Dynasty and the beginning of the Qing Dynasty, the villagers of Najiao Village in the north bank of Yongjiang River in Nanning crossed the river to reclaim wasteland in the south side of the river and planted sesame, gradually forming a village named "Mazi She" (sesame land). This is the former site of the regiment headquarters of the second regiment of Guangxi’s land reform regiment, an important witness to the history of land reform in Guangxi and China.
It is understood that the land reform of Mazi She became an epitome of the land reform work in Guangxi at that time, leaving a historical story of "going deep into life and taking root in the ordinary people". The old houses and sites where the members of the second regiment of Guangxi’s land reform working group lived and worked have been well preserved. There are still seven houses in Mazi She, all of which were built in the late Qing Dynasty and the early Republic of China, with green brick and tile surface, Chinese gabled roof, post and lintel frame, and brick and wood structure. In recent years, Nanning has actively explored and protected the cultural resources of Mazi She. Located on the former site of Guangxi’s land reform regiment, Guangxi Land Reform History Museum has officially opened, recording in detail the red glorious years of "beautiful south".
