Tiananmen Square Holidays photo copyrighted by: BeijingChinaWorld
Tiananmen Square is a modern creation, China being a land where large public
gathering places were not traditionally built. Its construction broke down walls of the Forbidden City to make way for the large thoroughfare, Chang'an Jie.
Previously Tiananmen Square was occupied by imperial offices which were inside the Forbidden City and connected the Temple of Heaven to Qianmen and the palace.
