The Jiuzhou Stadium in Mianyang City was a temporary shelter for tens of thousands of people made homeless by the quake. Thanks to the government's efforts, many people have been gradually moved to new makeshift homes.

And on Sunday, the last group of people moved out marking the end of the stadium's role as a shelter. Over 40,000 people affected by the quake lived here at one point making the stadium the biggest relocation center in the quake zone.
