Along with my Beijing debut in 2017, I was amazed by the majesty of the city buildings, which are deeply linked to Chinese history. The Temple of Heaven was a special favorite due to its a meaning and great beauty. The Ming and Qing dynasties worshiped the temple praying to Heaven during spring to bless their crops and in fall offering their gratitude for their harvest.
The Temple of Heaven is a complex of various religious buildings: the Circular Mound Altar, the Imperial Vault of Heaven and the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest from south to north. Everything surrounded by trees, paths and beautiful gardens. It’s a perfect place to relax and observe the locals while they exercise, practice traditional games, or write ephemeral poems with water and a giant brush on the ground.
Experience a sunset at The Temple of Heaven. Delve in its culture and the legacy of its ancestors, a unique place declared World Heritage by Unesco since 1998.
The Temple is protected by two walls, one inside and one on the outside. Architecture and its symbolism: they are designed by a rectangular base that represents the earth and are topped with rounded shapes to symbolize the sky.
