West Gate to Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests at Temple of Heaven in Beijing, China

The main gate leading to the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests is in the south. Two additional gates flank the square-shaped plaza. This west one leads to the Double-loop Longevity Pavilion. The east portal connects to the Long Corridor. Notice the scalloped arches below the titled roof. The design is similar to the gates at the Palace of Abstinence.
