38 meter Monument to national heroes - square monument with sayings Mao and Jou, decorated by reliefs on themes of the Chinese revolution is established in the center of the square. The Mausoleum of Mao is located directly opposite to ancient palace ensemble of "Forbidden city". From the western side - the House of National assemblies, with east - the Museum of history and the revolution, reminding monumental constructions of a Stalin epoch.

Every morning soldiers of military sentry lift a red banner of the Peoples Republic of China, and every evening with approach of darkness lower a national flag. During an epoch of empire simple citizens were not supposed to the square, and mass demonstrations here began to be spent in days of Mao.
