  Start slide show:
This Temple was completed during the Ming dynasty for the Emperor to pray and make sacrifices at the winter solstice. This temple was off limits to the 'common' people, while today it is a well attended park and area by locals and tourists alike. It is a large area with many trees more than 600 years old. Here many people are attracted to the area to dance, practice some tai chi, sing, play games or musical instruments. Originally there were many sacrifices offered to the gods, in food and animals. The ceremonies are detailed in one of the Museum.
