Tiananmen Square
Located in the center of Beijing, Tiananmen Square is the largest city square in the world with a capacity of holding one million people. Named after the Tiananmen gate (Gate of Heavenly Peace) located to its north, separating it from the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square has great cultural significance as it was the site of many important events in Chinese history such Chairman Mao's declaration of the establishment of the People's Republic of China on Oct, 01, 1949. As a result of a major expansion of Tiananmen Square in 1958, in its southern edge, the Monument to the People's Heroes has been erected, the Great Hall of the People and the National Museum of China were erected on the western and eastern sides of the square. After Chairman Mao's death in 1976, a Mausoleum was built to the south of Monument to the People's Heroes, on the main north-south axis of the square.

Forbidden City
As the royal residences of the emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties from the 15th to 20th century, the Forbidden City was the centre of state power in late feudal China. It was constructed between 1406 and 1420 by the Ming emperor Zhudi and witnessed the enthronement of 14 Ming and 10 Qing emperors over the following 505 years. The Forbidden City is the supreme model in the development of ancient Chinese palaces, providing insight into the social development of late dynastic China, especially the ritual and court culture. The layout and spatial arrangement inherits and embodies the traditional characteristic of urban planning and palace construction in ancient China, featuring a central axis, symmetrical design and layout of outer court at the front and inner court at the rear and the inclusion of additional landscaped courtyards. Meanwhile, more than a million precious royal collections, articles used by the royal family and a large number of archival materials on ancient engineering techniques, including written records, drawings and models, are evidence of the court culture and law and regulations of the Ming and Qing dynasties.

Great Wall of China
The Great Wall was continuously built from the 3rd century BC to the 17th century AD on the northern border of China as the great military defence project of successive Chinese Empires, with a total length of more than 20,000 kilometers. The Great Wall begins in the east at Shanhaiguan in Hebei province and ends at Jiayuguan in Gansu province to the west. Its main body consists of walls, horse tracks, watch towers, and shelters on the wall, and includes fortresses and passes along the Wall. The Great Wall reflects collision and exchanges between agricultural civilizations and nomadic civilizations in ancient China. It provides significant physical evidence of the far-sighted political strategic thinking and mighty military and national defence forces of central empires in ancient China, and is an outstanding example of the superb military architecture, technology and art of ancient China. The Great Wall embodies unparalleled significance as the national symbol for safeguarding the security of the country and its people.
