"Offering to Heaven" Top 5 Page for this destination Temple of Heaven Tip by SLLiew

Temple of Heaven, Beijing: 229 reviews and 504 photos


This temple for the annual offering and sacrifice rituals to the heaven by the Emperor for a good harvest for the country.

We walked along the path that the Emperor would have walked up to the altar. The temple itself is exquisite and symmetrical beauty in proportion. There are also Manchu inscriptions inside the temple reminding that the last dynasty in China were foreigners - Manchus who became Chinese.

I really love the architecture - the Temple of Heaven.
