Recently, the owner of "nail grave"---which stands in the middle of a construction site in Taiyuan city, N Shanxi Province -finally agreed on removal.

The owner, Chang Jinzhu, and his family have reached a verbal agreement with local village committee and the construction consortium to remove the grave in this month and would receive 800 Yuan ($128) in compensation, , according to Cao Shuanquan, who is in charge of the land use in the village.

The grave is nearly 10 meters high and covers an area of 10 sq. m, standing on the green between two high-rise buildings under construction, which has began for two years. The grave bears a resemblance to an islet isolated by the concrete forest that besieges it.
