Temple of Heaven

Temple of Heaven, Beijing, China

The Temple of Heaven is a masterpiece of 15th century architecture. Each year, Ming and Qing emperors came here to worship, make annual sacrifices to Heaven, and to pray for good harvests.

Temple of Heaven, Beijing, China

The temple has three main structures — the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest to the north, the Imperial Vault of Heaven in the center, and the Circular Mound Altar of Heaven to the south.



When To Visit the Temple
Arrive early in the morning, before the tour buses and crowds gather. Watch as the locals perform their morning Tai Chi exercises.

The temple is located in the heart of Beijing, about a mile south of the Tian'anment Gate at Tian'anmen Square.
