The Great Hall is right next to the Tiananmen Square in the heart of the city. It's a huge complex which houses the policy makers of China, though entry is restricted only to officials & People's representatives and not open for General Public.

A huge State building at the western edge of Tiananmen Square with an enormous conference hall. It is used for legislative and ceremonial activities of the Government. Historical events have taken place here and there are nice murals and paintings on the walls.
