"Chairman's Mao Zedong " Chairman Mao Memorial Hall - Mao's Mausoleum Tip by keeweechic


Chairman's Mao Zedong Picture on Tiananmen Gate - The Chairmans waxy remains lie under crystal in a nearby mausoleum. Mao's colossal portrait is the dominating feature.

The place above his receding hairline is where he declared the People's Republic on 1 October 1949. You can stand on the historic spot and relive the moment, for a fee of course.
