The square is named after Sun Zhongshan (Sun Yat-sen, the founding father of Republic of China, 1912-1949), but the revolutionary style statue shows Mao and his soldiers (you may find locals inline skating or art students practicing sketching nearby). The square itself is small, yet buildings around it are much more enjoyable to watch, and there's a story behind them :) This area is now branded as "The Zhongshan Road Historic District"(as shown in my photo), as it used to be the affiliated region of the Japanese railway "company"(South Manchuria Railway Zone). This region, along with the Railway station, was planned and built by the Japanese colonizers since 1910s. From this square, you can see a bunch of European style buildings, mostly banks or government buildings of eclecticism style (nowadays often keep their original function). To list two examples, a former Korean bank (established by the Japanese and used as a tool to colonize in Northeast China), and Dahe Hotel (used to serve high-ranking Japanese officials, now Liaoning Hotel). Walk around the square, you'll find brief introductions to those buildings (Mostly in Chinese), but at least you'll know when it was built :) The urban planning in the South Manchuria Railway Zone is very interesting, it was directed by the Japanese in the early 20th century, and basically kept intact up to this day. If you are really into this, you'll find some Russian features or relics there as well. Most importantly, unlike those copycats, these are all authentic.

Visited here as it appeared on what to do in shenyang in 48hrs. Well, it's just a small square you can take picture with. Activity can be done in 5mins, maybe coz it was scorching hot when we visited hence didnt really stayed long. Moreover there was no other visitor when we visit on an afternoon.

Nice enough, and good for a photo or two. Statue is big and well made and maintained. Difficult to get to though because it's in the middle of a roundabout.

The largest statue of mao in the revolutionary style which is still much in evidence in China and possibly seeing some revival The square is well kept and interesting particularly in the evening Be careful to cross the road Best thing is to walk with some Chinese people

The square is in the center of Zhongshan Rd. This sculpture is chairman Mao surrounded by proletariat, showing their highest salute to him.
