This impressive statue of Mao is situated on a very busy roundabout (not for away from the central railway station) Clean and well maintained.

The closest metro station to Zhongshan square is Tai Yuan Road (Line 1). The statue is pretty big. I assume it is one of the biggest statues of Mao in China. At night time many people gather here...especially ladies who dance to the rhythm of Chinese music.

Lit up beautifully at night. Even though it was -4 degrees, there were plenty of locals about. There were skateboarders and dancers, as well as people just ambling through. We only had eyes for the statue and enjoyed getting our photo with Mao. Love its dramatic supporting cast as well. If you've got the time, you've got to get the... More

The largest and one of the last remaining statues of Chairman Mao in the entire country. Best viewed at night. Very moving. Odd that Mao is facing due West, would have thought he should be facing East. He faces Shenyang train station. The locals call the statue "Mao hailing a cab." Shenyang people are funny like that.

Zhongshan Square is a rather grand square - with an unfortunate lack of trees if you're visiting in the summer as I was! - with a huge sculpture commemorating the Communist victory in the Chinese Civil War. Which leaves one wondering why the square is named after Sun Zhong Shan/Sun Yat-sen (the founder of the Republic of China, who is... More

As Shenyang was the first major city to fall to the PRA in 1948/9 it is still proud of it's history - who better to cement its place than Mao. The statue is impesive, well maintained and the Square is very clean and tidy. Keep going east on Zhongshan Lu to come to a good Bar area.

There are not many oversized Mao Statues left in China so if you are in Shenyang make sure to head over to see the chairman and get a feel what communist propaganda felt like.
