Tiananmen Gate - Gate of Heavenly Peace, Beijing: 27 reviews and 54 photos
It was from here that Mao proclaimed establishing of Chinese People's Republic in 1949. The gate consists of five doors. In the past only the emperor could use the central door, other people would have been beheaded if they did it. Today it's enough to pay for a ticket and you may without any fear use the main door. Remember that the ticket for Tiananmen Gate does not entitle you to enter Forbidden City, but only to climb the upper parts of the gate (which in my opinion is not worth the money).
Address: Tiananmen Square
