Tian An Men Square is a bad souvenir in the heart of all democrats of the world; on this place, young people fighting for freedom (yes their freedom conception, why not?) have been crushed by the People?s Army tanks. Today of course, most of people visiting this place do not think about and this Tian An Men square is a tourist destination in Beijing; it must be said that lots of history happened here, before this last tragic event. And the buildings around are known China wide and some of them world wide.
The people?s assembly hall is on the western side, the forbidden city on the northern side, the blablabla on the eastern side, and behind the ?chairman?s" (they call president Mao like that) mausoleum are two big towers before you reach the end of the square. Of course, as Chinese do not things at small scale, Tian An Men is said to be the widest open square of the world.

Main picture:This young soldier takes his job very seriously; watching in front of Mao?s mausoleum on Tian An Men Square.
Picture 2:A big monument to the glorification of the workers, soldiers, peasants, etc. etc. (any teacher, journalist, scientist, there?) being on guard at Mao?s Mausoleum. Many Chinese tourists visit Tian An Men and like to take photographs there.
Picture 3:Here is a group of tourists.
Picture 4: The ?obelisk? in the middle of the square; you cannot approach this monument, which is dedicated to the heroes of the revolution (oops! The Revolution
Picture 5: Usual weather in Beijing (told me my colleagues in the office here), misty a big part of the day, the season, the year. . . . This is the southern entrance of the forbidden city

Directions: In the very center of Beijing
