What people are saying:

Chairman Mao and other leaders lived here for a long time, especially the Central Auditorium here is the place where the Seventh Congress was held. This thousand-person auditorium did not have a beam or a column. Without lifting equipment at the time, relying solely on manpower was considered an architectural miracle. There is also a vegetable plot grown by Chairman Mao himself, which fully reflects the style of hard work at that time. Chairman Mao met here with American reporter Strong and put forward the famous conclusion that all reactionaries are paper tigers.

    Interesting Place!

Additional Information


Yangjialing Revolutionary Site is a place where the old generation of central-government leaders, such as Chairman Mao, lived in Yan'an for a long time. Yangjialing Revolutionary Site is divided into two parts, the south part and the north part along the road. The south side of the road is the central auditorium of the year. The north side of the road is the former residence of Mao Zedong, Zhu De, Zhou Enlai, Liu Shaoqi, and other central government leaders. The 7th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, which is of historical significance, was held in the central auditorium. At the meeting, Mao Zedong Thought was determined as the Party's guiding ideology. In 1946, Mao Zedong met with the American journalist Anna Louise Strong here and proposed the famous theory that "All the reactionaries are paper tigers."
