Chongqing People’ Hall

Each time on a Chongqing Tour, Chongqing People’s Hall will be listed on my travel agenda no matter how tight my schedule. The grandeur building has stood there over 60 yeaars since 1951 when it was built under the suggestion of Marshal He Long.

It was an huge auditorium to accommodate domestic and overseas guests. Its size and structture could rival the People’s Hall located in Tiananmen Square in Beijing.

It got its present name – Chongqing People’s Hall 1955. The hall is 65 meters high, and large enough to hold more than 4,000 seats.

Chongqing People’ Hall was constructed in the style of Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1616 – 1911) dynasties. Seen from its exterior, it resembles the Temple of Heaven in Beijing.
