The Temple of Heaven

 

The Temple of Heaven The Temple of Heaven is satiated in the southern part of Beijing. It was first built in 1420 in the Ming Dynasty during the time when the Forbidden City and some other important imperial structures were constructed. It covers an area of 273 hectares, which is 3 times larger than the Forbidden City. The Temple of Heaven is not only the largest group of temple building in China, but also the Heaven-worshiping architecture in the world.
