About the Temple of Heaven
The Temple of Heaven is religious complex in the south east of Central Beijing in China. The temple was constructed between 1406 to 1420 by the same Emperor who built the Forbidden City in Beijing. The temple was extended in the 16th Century and extensively renovated in the 18th Century. The temple covers around area of 2.73 square kilometres, and three main main groups of buildings:
- Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests: 36 metre circular building with a three tier roof, where Emperor’s would go to ceremonially pray for a good harvest.
- The Imperial Vault of Heaven: Circular building with a single roof connected by steps to the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests.
- The Circular Mound Altar: This building is a circular platform with the temple’s altar, access to the altar is via three flights of marble steps.
The Temple of Heaven has square and circular elements representing the connection between heaven and earth. According to ancient Chinese belief the earth is represented by a square and heaven by a circle, which is why the Temples themselves are circular. Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests has 4 inner pillars, 12 middle pillars and 12 outer pillars representing the four season, 12 months, and 12 hours of the ancient Chinese clock.
The Temple of Heaven sits within a park covering 267 hectares. The park is open every day from 06:00 until 22:00, with the Temple itself open from 08:00 until 17:30.
