People's Square (Rénmín guǎngchǎng)
People's Square (Rénmín guǎngchǎng) Review
If you happen to forget which country Kashgar is in, chances are you aren't standing in this square.

The statue is evidence of an unspoken rule in China that directly relates the size of a Mao tribute to its distance from Beijing; the only Mao statue larger than this one is in Tibet.
