The temple was located in the southeast of Forbidden City’s wall and on the east of Zhengyangmen. Constructed between 1420, the Temple was constructed under the reign of the Yongle Emperor. 

The Temple of Heaven covers an astonishing 2.72 million m2.  It is larger than the Forbidden City as the Emperor’s once considered themselves Son’s of the Heaven, naturally the Temple should be larger than their palace.  

The temple is made up of Yuanqiutan, Huangqiongyu and Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest (Qiniandian) from south to north. The temple demonstrates the accumulation of Chinese culture and religion. The architecture and décor of the temple are truly breathtaking.
