Travel Guide - Tian'anmen Square

The Ti'ananmen Square China tour deals is the world’s largest public square covering 440,000 square meters. It’s where important ceremonies like China’s first mass public rally on May 4, 1919 held, Chairman Mao Zedong’s proclamation of establishing the People’s Republic of China on Oct. 1, 1949, and many more political events and student’s protests in Chinese history. Before it became a square and named Ti'ananmen, it was formerly called Chengtianmen Gate, The Gate of Heavenly Succession during the Ming Dynasty. It was the main gate to the Imperial City within which the Forbidden City was located. History unfolded that the cause of the destruction of the gate was because of lightning and of wars. It has been destroyed, rebuilt and expanded several times over different leadership. In 1958, a large number of residential buildings and other structures have been demolished per Chairman Mao’s instruction. This was one of his visions to modernize and industrialize the country. When Chairman Mao Zedong died, a mausoleum was built for him near the site where Chengtianmen Gate was before. On the southern edge of the square was the Monument to the People’s Heroes, National Museum to its east, and the China Holidays Great Hall of People to its west.
