Chairman Mao Memorial Hall (Maozhuxi Jiniantang), Beijing

2.7
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.

  • It was closed for maintenance. But still surprising many people tried to get as close as possible and return to visit us.
