Chairman Mao Memorial Hall

Local name毛主席纪念堂
LocationBeijing, China

The Chairman Mao Memorial Hall, commonly known as the Mausoleum of Mao Zedong, is the final resting place of Mao Zedong, Chairman of the Politburo of the Communist Party of China from 1943 and the Chairman of the Communist Party of China from 1945 until his death in 1976.

Although Mao had wished to be cremated, this was ignored and his body was embalmed. The construction of a mausoleum as his final rest place began shortly after his death. This highly popular attraction is located in the middle of Tiananmen Square in Beijing. It stands on the previous site of the Gate of China, the southern gate of the Imperial City during the Ming and Qing dynasties.
