"The Temple of Heaven" Temple of Heaven Tip by roamer61
Temple of Heaven, Beijing: 229 reviews and 504 photos
This was the primary temple for worship visited by the emperors during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Built by the Ming in the 14th and 15th centuries, it is actually a complex surrounded by beautiful parkland. The Emperor would visit 2 times a year and pray for a good year, with ample crops and abundant rain.
The complex is designed so you either buy a through ticket or individual tickets, depending on what you wish to do. In addition to the temples, the park is a lovely place to simply stroll. The Temple of Heaven, like the Forbidden City, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
