The Tian'anmen Square (Plaza of the Gate of Heavenly Peace) in Beijing, was designed and built within the urban plan of the capital made after 1949, being the symbol of New China.

With its construction was intended to create a large square in which they could develop massive political acts, whose tradition was absent in China, like those performed in Red Square in Moscow in the Soviet Union.

Tian'anmen Square is the world's largest square, with 880 meters from north to south and 500 meters from east to west, with a total area of 440,000 square meters.

Location: 39 ° 54'10 "N 116 ° 23'30" E / 39.90278, 116.39167

The square is built along the north-south axis of the Forbidden City. In the center stands a stone obelisk, the Monument to the People's Heroes, a 38 m high, and an inscription by the Chairman Mao Zedong in which we read the people's heroes are immortal. A left and right two major buildings were built in Soviet style. One is the National Assembly, and the other is the National Museum of History and the Revolution. Also in the square is the mausoleum of Mao Zedong, in his previous two fronts by sculptural groups of peasants, soldiers, workers and students.

The square was the site of the Revolt of the Tian'anmen Square in 1989.
