This is the location where Chairman Mao declared the People's Republic Of China into being in 1949 and a large picture of him is located just below where he stood. The gate is an impressive structure overlooking the square which you pass through on your way to the Forbidden City. Well worth a look and a definate Beijing photo stop.. The Chinese guards are also impressive
