Tiantan Park or the Temple of Heaven is the largest architectural group for worshipping heaven in the world. The top half of the park is curved while the bottom half is square, which was meant to represent the ancient belief that Heaven was round and the Earth was square. I took some snaps of three major buildings in the park. The first is the Circular Mound Altar where the emporer would worship heaven on the winter solstice. The Imperial Vault of Heaven is a large building in the center of the park, but the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests is probably the most recognizable to cachers. This Hall is where I marked the coordinates. You cannot currently approach the Hall as close as you could in the past as they are cleaning it and the Forbidden City in preparation for the Olympics.
