Chairman Mao's Mausoleum

Chairman Mao Memorial Hall, Beijing, China

Chairman Mao Memorial Hall
Chairman Mao Memorial Hall is located at the south end of Tian'anmen Square in the heart of Beijing. Completed in 1977 — the year after Mao's death — the mausoleum has since been visited by over 110 million people from around the world.

Inside the Viewing Hall, Chairman Mao (founder of the People's Republic of China) lies in state in a crystal casket. Each morning, the casket is mechanically raised from a freezer for viewing during the day and then lowered again at night.

Be prepared to wait in line for several hours (especially during peak season) before slowly filing past his casket.
