Temple of Heaven

The Temple of Heaven is the largest ancient sacrificial complex in China. Emperors held the Heaven Worship Ceremony here during the Ming and Qing dynasties. Buildings on the complex are noted for their grandiose architecture. Surrounded by two walls, the complex occupies an area of 2,700,000 square meters and contains an inner temple and an outer temple. The most popular buildings are the Altar of Prayer for Good Harvests and the Circular Mound Altar. The Altar of Prayer for Good Harvests is the oldest building on the complex. It is a circular building containing a roof with three eaves. The Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests is supported by 28 pillars symbolizing four seasons, twelve months, and the twelve daily Chinese Shichens (each representing two hours). The Circular Mound Altar is where ancient sacrifices took place each winter solstice. A magnificent display of Chinese culture can be found in the Temple of Heaven complex.
