Temple of Heaven

The Temple of Heaven is the most holy of Beijing's imperial temples. The temple was where the Emperor came every winter solstice to worship heaven and to solemnly pray for a good harvest and seek divine clearance. UNESCO endorsed Temple of Heaven as a world cultural heritage site in December 1998.

Experience the morning life of Beijing citizens at the Temple of Heaven. One could see older people practicing slow and flowing movements of Tai Chi or younger generation performing vigorous karate-like punches and kicks. One group might be learning the ancient martial art of sword-fighting, while another might be practicing a traditional dance. It is well worth visiting this park early morning to watch such events take place.
