Monument to the People’s Heroes Tours

The Monument to the People's Heroes stands in the center of Tiananmen Square, close to the Memorial Hall of Chairman Mao. Construction of the monument began in 1952 and was completed in 1958. It involved the use of thousands of pieces of marble and granite brought in from provinces on the outskirts of Beijing. The result is a towering rectangular structure measuring in at almost 40 meters high.

The monument is engraved with the dates of significant revolutionary events in China’s history. In the center of one side, a piece of stone is inscribed with the words, "Eternal Glory to the People's Heroes" in Mao Zedong's hand.

Practical Info

To reach the Monument to the People's Heroes and other attractions in this area, head for Tiananmen East station or Tiananmen West and walk south.
