Which is landmark structure constructed at the turn of the century? (Part ii)

At the southern entrance of the monument stands a while marble stone monument, nine meters long and 1.6 meters wide. To the north of the monument lies the Square of Holy Fire, one meter lower than the ground. The square consists of 960 pieces of granite, and has an area of 960 square meters, standing for China's vast territory of 9,600,000 square kilometers.

In the center of the square stands the ever-burning holy fire, a token of the Chinese civilization. Along both the eastern and western sides of the square, there is a steady current of water, reminding visitors of the mother river of the Chinese nation - the Yellow River.
