Intricate Monument

These are wonderful monuments at the back of Tian'anmen Square. These are both very detailed and a sight to behold. Definitely worth a look while in Tian'anmen Square

I found this monument fairly interesting. It sort of reminded me of the thing that you would expect to see in a communist country and it certainly has the name to match. Took a few selfies and moved on.

At the rear of Tianamen square you will find the two memorial statues both are absolutely stunning and incredibly well detailed - definitely worth checking them out...

As one walks through Tiananmen Square, it's pretty impossible to miss this monument. For one thing, apart from the various buildings that surround the square, it's the only monument there. Secondly, in true socialist-style architecture, it's built on a grand scale, taking up a floor area of almost 3000 square metres, making it the largest monument of its kind in... More

This sculpture is really lovely and is not dissimilar to the one on the Waterfront in Lisbon and has been produced for much the same reasons. IF you go anywhere near Tiananmen Square make sure you look out for it, just in front of Mao's tomb.

This is a massive monument in the centre of Tiananmen Square. At 38 metres high, it stands out in the flat square surrounding it. The monument is dedicated to the people who lost their lives during the Chinese revolution. A bit of hassle getting to it with the extra security at the square.

This huge monument, located in the center of Tiananmen square, is not always accessible. If you manage to get close to it, try to look at the details, as it's quite elaborated.

It’s a national monument dedicated to the martyrs of revolutionary struggle of China during the 19th and 20th centuries. It is located right in middle of Tiananmen Square. It’s got a lot of importance to the Chinese people. One won’t be able to miss it when there. By itself its nothing great, the monument itself is simple although the empty... More

The Monument of the People's Heroes appropriately stands in front of the Great Hall of the Peoples Heroes. While the memorial is the largest monument in China's history. 'The People's Heroes are Immortal' written by Chairman Mao is engraved on the monument. Eight unusually large relief sculptures show to the people the development of Chinese modern history. Two rows of... More

We had a walk in this area on a smoggy day in Beijing. The square is impressingly large, too large for with the current air quality to look across.
