Beijing's China Century Altar is located at the southern end of Yuyuantan Park, in between the Military Museum, which lies to the east, and the office tower block belonging to China Central Television (CCTV), which lies to the west. Beijing's China Century Altar was erected as part of China's efforts to welcome in the new millenium in the year 2000. The altar is located on Fuxing Road – sometimes referred to as "Extended Chang'an Avenue" – and covers an area of 450,000 square meters. On the stele over the entrance to the altar are engraved five Chinese characters bearing the following meaning: "The Chinese name of this place was written by the former President of China, Jiang Zemin".
