Magnificent roofs and archways decorate the impressive entrance of the Temple of Tian Tan, now known as 'The Temple of Heaven', in China’s capital, Beijing.

The parkland covers an area of around 270 hectares and is one of the largest temple grounds in China. The temple was built toward the beginning of the 15th century by the Ming Emperor, Yongle, and was originally used for the worship of Heaven and Earth. The splendid architecture and design of the buildings demonstrates the former social importance of the temple during the time of both the Qing and Ming Dynasty.

The striking roofs of the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests are covered with almost 50,000 shining blue glazed tiles that symbolize both sky and heaven and its interior extends to a height of 38m with four majestic columns supporting the uppermost roof, each one representing the four seasons.

During the magical moments of twilight, the ancient Chinese belief that the holy temple of Tian Tan is the one place nearest to heaven, certainly begins to make sense. As the sun touches the towers, roofs and animal imagery of the temple, it creates a magnificent portrait plus an array of beautiful architectural silhouettes.

Right up to this day, the temple of TIAN TAN is a magnificent symbol of unity between Heaven and Earth.
