This monument is a true symbol for the ongoing fight of the Tibetan people for independence and liberty. The fact that it stands in the middle of the Chinese capital and has not been torn down by the Chinese Government is not only a real miracle, it's also an evidence for the chance for a peaceful solution for the Tibet conflict. It was erected in 1947 (at the time China had not yet annexed Tibet) and it displays the 13th Dalai Lama, Thubten Gyatso, in a meditating position with a plaque saying: "In the practice of tolerance, one's enemy is the best teacher." This monument is not very large or impressive by itself, but considered it's symbolic importance.
