The Temple of Heaven is south of Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. The main building which is a dramatic circular building set on the top of stone steps is called the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests. The layout of this imperial complex is straight forward with the major attractions located along the centre that include: Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests, East Annex Hall, West Annex Hall, Danbi Bridge, Echo Wall, Imperial Vault of Heaven, Circular Mound Altar, Lingxing Gates, Fasting Palace and Divine Music. Our visit seemed to bring out a bit more sun and more umbrellas. The size is impressive with the courtyards and it seemed easier access to get around the complex.
