  • 人民英雄紀念碑豎立在天安門廣場的中央, 為紀念中國近現代史上的人民英雄而建, 刻着毛澤東題寫的「人民英雄永垂不朽」八個大字. 背面內容為毛澤東起草、周恩來書寫的碑文, 有時間可以細閱. 
  • 位處天安門廣場的中心位置,屹立見證了歷史的發展。雖然現在是被圍起來了,但仍能感受其懾人的力量,懷緬可歌可泣的故事。 
  • The monument is located right in the center of Tiananmen Square. The location is still close to the National Museum, and the forbidden city.

  • 人民英雄紀念碑,屹立在中國首都北京市天安門廣場中央,高大雄偉,看起來很莊嚴,鐫刻着毛澤東題寫的“人民英雄永垂不朽”八個鎏金大字,四周都被包圍起來,不允許遊客觸摸,而且四周都有武警站崗,很威嚴。
