Tian’anmen Square is one of the largest city squares in the world, built in 1417 during the Ming dynasty, as the entrance to the Forbidden City. The square has since been enlarged by four times its original size in the 1950s, and currently stretches 880 meters from north to south, and 500 meters from east to west, spanning an area of 440,000 square meters. That’s the size of 60 soccer fields big enough to accommodate half a million people!
