Monument
Visit the final resting place of one of the 20th century's best known world leaders at Chairman Mao Memorial Hall (Maozhuxi Jiniantang), the mausoleum of Mao Zedong. Commemorating the chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Part of China from 1945 until his death in 1976, the large, monumental hall has a scale you would expect for a memorial to such a figure, with imposing columns and little to distract the eye in the area immediately surrounding it. Head on to the main court, which has been dotted with statues with images of national pride, red flags, and inscriptions. Line up and walk past the leader's flag-draped body, and head to the onsite museums to learn about the deeds and beliefs of the leader. Take a look at our Beijing travel itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Chairman Mao Memorial Hall (Maozhuxi Jiniantang) and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • The monument is great and despite the row, the input (and output) is fast, because you can't stop. The site is focused on Mao Zedong, the Chinese culture has great value. As a tourist attraction in itself not much interesting. Completely expendable.

  • In the building of the MAUSOLEUM of MAO is his tomb, many adherents, especially internal tourists from china itself (almost 80% of domestic tourists, and only 20% of tourists are foreigners). Indeed, in all the buildings and the State (metro, monuments, museums, buildings Government...) there is extensive control, which although realized by all that long tail, are efficient and is managed quite fast. They don't let in many places make photos or photos with flash, it must be respected to avoid problems. It can not be entered with lighters or matches, smokers are so complicated because they leave your burner outside and when yours is no longer located and have to take someone else's. Worth a visit for its history and its meaning

  • There was no queue so we went in. Free entry and there is a security check at the entrance. No bags or cameras allowed and complete silence. In and out within a few minutes. Very efficient.  more »
