In the pavilion, there was a national humiliation map drawn in cement, and the land leased and lost was painted with bright colors to arouse the patriotic enthusiasm of the people. The pavilion was later destroyed in the "Wenxi Fire".In 1946, in order to commemorate the soldiers killed in the "Battle of Changsha" during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression, the then Hunan Provincial Government built a pavilion named Chonglie Pavilion on the original site of the National Shame Memorial Pavilion. The pavilion was inscribed by Mr. Chiang Kai-shek himself.
