Introduction
Tianan'men Square located in the center of Beijing city, Tian’anmen Square,the biggest square in the world, occupies an area of 500,000 square meters.The construction history of People’s Republic of China was first written here Because it is several hours older than PRC.

According to Chinese traditional ideology, monument should face South just as the building. But former premier Zhou Enlai gave advice to the architect that it should face Tian’anmen and Chang’an street. Because most people enter the square from the north part. Architects accepted his advice. People are the creators of history. Architects wrote the miracle that completes the building of the Great Hall of the People in ten months at the 10th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
