Chairman Mao Zedong Memorial Hall Introduction

Introduction
The Chairman Mao Memorial Hall located in the south of Tianmen Square is  a great square building with a total area of 57000 square meters. This site had previously stood the southern gate to the Forbidden City (Gate of China) during the Ming and Qing dynasties. Chairman Mao, the founder of the People's Republic of China, passed away o­n September 9, 1976. In honor of his accomplishment, a Memorial Hall was constructed in November 1976 and was completed in May the next year. The Hall of Mourning is the main part of the memorial hall. In the center of the hall is a black granite coffin bed, o­n which a crystal coffin lies. Inside the coffin, the remains of Chairman Mao wears gray suit and is covered with the red flag of the Communist Party. People queue up for hundreds of meters to wait the chance to see the former chairman.

Chairman Mao Zedong Memorial Hall Features

Highlights
The Chairman Mao Zedong Memorial Hall stands o­n the former sits of Zhonghuamen Gate at the southern end of Tian'anmen Square between the Monument to the People‘s Heroes and Zhengyangmen Gate. Red Sichuan granite at its base and trees around the hall is designed o­n principles of symmetry and "centrality." Sculptures north and south supplement the artistic rendering of national struggle presented o­n the Monument to the People‘s Heroes. The first floor is open to the public. Behind the white marble status of Chairman Mao is an immense tapestry of China‘s mountains and rivers. In the Hall of Mourning, the heart of the mausoleum, lies Mao (1893-1976) in his usual gray suit, draped with the red flag of the Communist Party, in a crystal casket. The rare Phoebe nanmu wood of the doors and walls was carted north from a peak o¬n Hainan Island under the supervision of Zhou Enlai. Mao‘s poem Reply to Comrade Gao Moruo in his own hand covers the white marble face of the last hall to the south. Out the back is a small open area, formerly known as Chessboard Street, which served as a busy hub of commerce in the Ming Dynasty. The Qianmen area, o­ne of the Beijing‘s busiest commercial districts, lies beyond.
