Interesting to walk around the statue and take photos with Mao front and back. As it is located at Tianfu Square train station ((Subway Line 1 and 2), we included some shopping at Tianfu Square and a visit to the Library.

If you haven't seen a Mao statue before, it will be fun to take a picture. However, if you've been anywhere else in China, you've likely become pretty familiar with Mao. You'll likely see this anyway since it's in Tianfu Square.

Mao statue is overlooking the Tianfu square and looks quite good. Seems to be well protected by police (present around in large number).

This is the statue of Chairman Mao that you will find in almost every city in China. His everlooming presence is found here in front of the Science Museum in Chengdu, at a very busy intersection in the heart of the city.

The surrounding is interesting to visit. There are sculptures showcasing the history of Sichuan region. The layout of the square is similar to People's Square in Shanghai.
