China trip 13. – Tianamen square

beijing pano 1024

Here is the famous Tiananmen Square, a place where some students made a demonstration against the government in 1989.

Today, this moment in history is a taboo subject in Beijing you can’t talk about.   On my last article on the government filtered internet, I didn’t check this item.

Like many big famous places, all entries/exits to the site require going through security checks.

Entrance to the metro station is blocked sometimes.
