This large government building sits just to the west of Tiananmen Square. It's impressive looking and is where the whole Chines council meets. You can't get in so just enjoy the view from the square.

Located just near Tain'anmen Square, this imposing building is worth a quick stop to view from the exterior. There is nothing outstanding about the design, but what makes it impressive is the general feel of power and dominance where it is set among other buildings...More
