Highlights Archives: Temple of Heaven
Temple of Heaven was built in 1,420 in the Ming Dynasty, which is the most holy of all Beijing’s imperial temples. This is where the Emperor came every winter solstice to worship heaven and to solemnly pray for a good harvest. True to the Chinese saying, “Round Heaven, Square Earth.” The park is in a square shape and the temple in a round shape which symbolizes that the emperor had to leave the Earth (represented by the square) for Heaven (represented by the round-roofed building).
