The Temple of Heaven, a place where the earthly ruler talks to the heavenly emperor

Left Parlor of the Main Hall of Abstinence


Displayed in this room are a set of jade chimes, musical bells and sacrificial objects used by the emperor for the ceremony.



Sweet Spring Well


The water from the well in the compound of the Divine Kitchen tastes sweet. It was used to make soup for the sacrificial ritual. Taoists in the Ming Dynasty said the well was connected with heaven. Emperor Zhu Houzong believed it and named the well "Heavenly Well".



Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest


Also known as Qigu Hall, it was the spot where the emperor of the Ming and Qing dynasties prayed for good harvest in spring. The umbrella-like structure of three tiers stands on a six-meter-high white marble circular terrace and is 32 meters high and 24.2 meters around at the base.
