We went solely for the change of guard, nice display of military discipline which we only get to see on National Day celebrations. Nice for photo taking and video recording is also allowed, you may pose for pictures with the guards on duty but please do not touch them.

Visiting on a Monday morning proved an effective way to avoid the crowds. Able to wander around the shrine relatively undisturbed by large groups.

Part of area was under reconstruction so we're only able to see part of it. The majority of the tourists were taking pictures of the guards.

The place is like Arlington National Cemetary in the U.S., but at a smaller scale with only wooden gravestone. Visitors can learn those who sacrificed their life for the Chinese revolution.
