Memorial Hall of Chairman Mao

The memorial hall is shaped like a square with coverage of 20,000 square meters and a height of 33.6 meters. Currently there are 10 halls open to the public.

The north hall to the main gate can accommodate over 700 people. It is the place where the memorial activities are held. In the center of the hall erects Chairman Mao's three-meter-high sitting statue made of white marbles. Chairman Mao wears smiles with grand manner. Behind the statue is a large-scale floss embroidery entitled Throughout China. Revolutionary achievements of Mao Zedong, Liu Shaoqi, Zhou Enlai and Zhu De are on display in the west and the east halls. Inside the halls, visitors can found many cultural relics, historical documents, letters and pictures.

The core of the memorial hall is the Respecting Hall, in the middle of which is the crystal coffin that contains the remains of Chairman Mao in grey sun yat sen's uniform and covered with the red banner of the Chinese Communist Party. Made of black granite, the coffin platform is surrounded by flowers. On the white-marble wall of the hall, gold-plating characters are beset: Eternal glory to our great leader and teacher Chairman Mao!
