[Mcm2Ada] Beijing- Temple of Heaven (8 photos)

This temple is rightly called the personification of heavenly harmony on earth. Like all places of worship in China, it is incredibly organic. And this very organic structure gives the perfect circle shape of the temple. This is not typical of Chinese architecture, but that's what makes the church very popular. Due to its unusual shape is a symbol of Beijing's 500 years


Built this temple was the Emperor Yong Le of the Ming Dynasty in 1420 According to the plan he was to become the Temple of Heaven and Earth, but in 1430 in Beijing was built another temple of the Earth, and became just the temple Tantan heaven, not lost, however, its significance



Besides the main temple buildings, there are many buildings of a secondary nature: a gazebo for slaughtering sacrificial animals, the bell tower, storage room for tools, as well as a large green garden. Thus, the entire temple complex is surrounded by two walls, which covers an area of ​​266.7 ha



Every year for the past 500 years, the winter solstice on the day in the Temple of Heaven comes the emperor to pray the forces of the sky such as rain, wind, clouds, hail. To appear only when needed, that is the key to a good harvest. Also, apart from prayer, fasting three days of the emperor, who holds a monastery in absolute detachment from the madding crowd
