Reconquista

Striking color and roof

The Imperial Vault of Heaven is located on the grounds of the Temple of Heaven and was built in 1530 during the reign of Emperor Jiajing of the Ming Dynasty. It's notable for its striking color and the shape of its roof. It was used in ancient times by the Chinese emperors to pay homage to their ancestors. With a height of 19.2 meters and a diameter of 15.6, it's smaller than the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests, which is the main building in the complex and one of the most recognizable symbols of the Chinese capital.

The Temple of Heaven

The Temple of Heaven was the place where emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties offered sacrifices to heaven to pray for bountiful harvests. Located in the Tiantan Park Gongyuan, south of Beijing. The attached video is priceless, it's something fun and surprising. If someone doesn't know how to kill some time with friends, don't miss "The great ball game!"
