Beijing – Temple of Heaven

As you approach the Temple of Heaven’s South Gate, imagine it is 1724. You are part of the 3,500 person (plus elephants) parade escorting Qianlong Emperor to his three-day religious ceremony praying for a good harvest and future. This ancient site – the largest in Beijing – was revered by every Chinese emperor from 1420 until 1911. You will thoroughly enjoy this walking tour of the highlights.
