Temple of Heaven

Temple of Heaven

The Temple of Heaven was one of my favorite ancient sites to visit in Beijing. The iconic buildings are the main draw, but the parks and other smaller buildings on the grounds provide a unique calmness. This peacefulness presents a welcome change the noise and congestion of the city, which begins again just on the other side walls and gates. This image was taken in the main temple hall, and shows the engineering prowess and attention to intricacy that the ancient builders had.
