The mausoleum is free, but for a few RMB you can buy a flower and lay it at the foot of a statue.
Even when the queues stretch several hundred metres long, it shouldn’t take you more than 25 minutes to get through the building.
Camera and bags must be checked in to storage just across the street on the east side of the square. Follow the signs.
