Haikou was originally a port city, serving as the port for Qiongshan. During the Chinese Civil War, Haikou was one of the last Nationalist strongholds to be taken by the Communists — with the Battle of Hainan Island in 1950. Currently, more than half of the island’s total trade still goes through Haikou’s ports. The Temple of the Five Lords is located to the southeast of the city.
