Neighborhood: Tiananmen Square

This massive mausoleum and memorial hall was built at Tiananmen Square, the center of Beijing and metaphorically of the whole of China, shortly after Mao's death in 1976. For nearly 30 years Mao was the center of the Chinese universe, and he is certainly still revered there today by many. The lines that file into the building and pass his glass sarcophagus are long but fast-moving, and visitors often get the feeling they are being whisked away before they can get a good look at the Great Helmsman, fueling rumors that what is on display is a wax impersonation.
