Temple of Heaven

You’ll need to make your way through a string of century-old pine trees, followed by graceful gardens, to get to the Temple of Heaven. This religious complex was built in the 15th century to demonstrate the relationship between the human world and the heavens, through the sky and the earth. Emperors would celebrate this close relationship and this feeling of harmony. For the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the buildings, with their raised or conical roofs, were sites of sacrifices. Make your way up the steps to explore the details of this traditional architectural gem, recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
