Temple of Heaven

The Temple of heaven (天坛) was built in 1420 A.D. during the Ming Dynasty to offer sacrifice to Heaven. With an area of about 2,700,000 square meters, the temple of heaven is larger than the forbidden city but smaller than the summer palace. Like many other parks in Beijing, the temple of heaven is popular with seniors who practice different forms of entertainment in large groups.
