Chairman Mao Zedong
Mao Zedong; known as 'Chairman Mao', was the Chairman of the Communist party of China from 1945 - 1976. He was a communist revolutioinary who expanded on Marxism and Leninism to create Maoism.
Chairman Mao's efforts to drive imperialism out of China led to the deaths of tens of millions of people across the country. His influence shaped the whole country and he is now remembered as one of the most important people in modern history.
His body is preserved in the 'Chairman Mao Memorial Hall', which can be found in Tiananmen Square in Beijing, China.
Mao himself actually wished to be cremated. Despite this, 700,000 people all worked voluntarily to build him his final resting place, which  was completed within a year of his death.
The mausoleum is typically open from 08:00-12:00 Tuesday-Sunday.
