Temple of Heaven - Explored!

Thank you for the explore - 11/23 - #205!

 

A bit easier to get to this replica than the real thing! Seen in the China Pavilion at Epcot in Orlando, Florida.

 

The Temple of Heaven, literally the Altar of Heaven, is a complex of Taoist buildings situated in the southeastern part of central Beijing. The complex was visited by the Emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties for annual ceremonies of prayer to Heaven for good harvest. It is regarded as a Taoist temple, although Chinese Heaven worship, especially by the reigning monarch of the day, pre-dates Taoism.

 

Feedback, comments & advice very much appreciated.
