Guess Chairman Mao can't be missed on the square. The statue stands overlooking the Tianfu Square so you get 2 attractions in one.

When visiting Tianfu Square you will see Mao’s statue on the side, overlooking (keeping an eye) on the square.

It's a statue...nothing much else to say except it's a lot smaller than I thought it'd be. It is in a nice square though and there weren't many people around when we went so nice to walk around it for a bit.
