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

Inside the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest


The pillars inside the hall all have a meaning: the four in the inner circle represent the four seasons of the year; the 12 pillars in the middle circle represent 12 months of the year and the 12 pillars in the couter circle represent 12 time periods of the day. The Leigong Pillar under the center of the ceiling means the absolute power of the emperor.



Gate of Prayer for Good Harvests


The grand gate south of the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest stands on a white marble base and has a roof of blue glazed tiles. It was once named Daji and Daheng at different times.
