The famous monument stands in the capital of China, in Beijing. It has a sundial-like architecture and consists of the main sundial structure, the Bronze Corridor, the Flame Square, the Centennial Hall, and the Art Pavilion.

This monument combines the spirit of traditional Chinese culture and modern architectural art, with poetic language giving importance to ‘water’ and ‘stone’ in the overall design. On the exterior wall of the architecture, symbolic patterns of the 56 nationalities of China are engraved. At the center of the rotating structure, there is a level and round stage with a diameter of 14 meters, which serves as an arena for art performances and other events.
