Discover The Temple of Heaven (Tiantan)

The Temple of Heaven (Tiantan) is located to the south of the old town. This very famous temple with blue roofs constructed without a single nail, was built by the Ming Emperors to stay in touch with heaven. The emperors came here twice a year to celebrate the harvests. It opens at 5:00am and is also a gathering place for devotees of tai chi chuan.
