For Curiosities only. Impressive structure. Go for a visit. Like all things in China, go early! Early as in 15 to 20 minutes prior to opening Early. Make sure you visit this place carrying the lightest load possible. Otherwise you'll have to check your backpack in somewhere. They will not let you take photos inside and will keep the line moving. Try not to be alarmed if people start weeping when they see Mao. Photos are from the entrance and exit.
Very interesting must have passport to get tickets watch out it is closed certain days check online
Place is open from 8am-12pm. Rumored to have the ex chairman's body as wax figure rather than the real body.
Huuuge building, maybe not so beautiful but it epitomizes power of China and its leader(s).
This is a very important location for the PRC, it is equivalent to seeing such monuments in the US as The Lincoln Memorial. Remember that China's history surpasses that of the US by centuries. As so many other reviews before me posted, tough security requirements and crowded. Once you are here you are on government land, so entry and exits are maned by guards. The Monument itself is stunning. Definitely something I will take with me.
I cri every tim ;(
Good. Mausoleum of Mao Zedong, China, Beijing, Dongcheng
A very short walk through the building, past the body of Mao. You can't take pictures inside, or dawdle, they will make you keep moving. Queue starts on the east side. Before joining the queue, make sure you deposit your bags at a building just across the road on the east side of Tiananmen Square.
An incredible experience and one of the most important monuments in contemporary Chinese culture. Show up early and expect a long line to see Moa. The actual viewing will be very short lived but if you're aware of Chinese history it will be a memory of a lifetime.
It's a place worth visiting if you happen to be at Tian'anmen Square early in the day as it takes some time to queue for security checks and to get in.
There were no sign (Chinese or English) to inform tourist that we need to keep our hand bag, camera in the building across the road. We were scolded by the Chinese security at the entrance for no reason. They are very rude, not only they shout at you in Chinese, they push you back to the entrance for not keeping hand bag in the building across the road. Not a place that I would recommend to visit, not even when you have no where else to go.
Very eerie to walk through. It is a mausoleum after all. There are lots of plants and flowers creating clean air and humdity - very refreshing from the Beijing air. The gaurds rush you through the building. You're in and out in 5-10 minutes after you clear airport level security.
