Temple of Heaven, Beijing

Temple of Heaven, Beijing 711

Beijing's Temple of Heaven is where many dynasties would go to pray, making their way a few miles from the Forbidden City in the heart of Beijing.

Several spectacular buildings and a burial mound are surrounded by park filled with trees and cement pavers, out of which sprouts plants and grass.

The park is still a lively gathering place for locals to come to play cards, talk, and pray.

It would have never occurred to me that the set of small cute-looking houses with a candy bridge could actually be a temple! How you manage to find magnifiscent places like this one? Do you mind me linking to you from Essayedge loves travel stories.
