J+100. Beijing. China. 100 days. Wow. Still can’t believe it ❤️ #china #beijing #worldtour #templeofheaven #temple #roundtheworld #axelworldtour #travel #travelgram
I paid a visit to the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery today. The weather was incredibly overcast and it has been damp all day. . Height: 34 m. Erected in 1993. Weighs over 250 metric tons. . #tiantanbuddha #polinmonastery #lantau #ngongping #hongkong #buddhism #statue #buddhistart #templeofheaven #tiantan
In ancient China, the Emperor of China was regarded as the Son of Heaven, who administered earthly matters on behalf of, and representing, heavenly authority. - To be seen to be showing respect to the source of his authority, in the form of sacrifices to heaven, was extremely important. - The temple was built for these ceremonies, mostly comprising prayers for good harvests. - Twice a year the Emperor and all his retinue would move from the Forbidden City through Beijing to encamp within the complex, wearing special robes and abstaining from eating meat. - No ordinary Chinese was allowed to view this procession or the following ceremony. - In the temple complex the Emperor would personally pray to Heaven for good harvests. - The highpoint of the ceremony at the winter solstice was performed by the Emperor on the Earthly Mount. - The ceremony had to be perfectly completed; it was widely held that the smallest of mistakes would constitute a bad omen for the whole nation in the coming year. - #templeofheaven #explorebeijing #beijingchina #beijinger #beijinglife #vscobeijing #traveleverywhere #forbestravelguide #lonelyplanet #nytimestravel #bbctravel #fernweh #expedia #discoverchina #chinatravel #travelchina #backpackingasia #travelinspo #travelphotography 📷 #unesco #unescoworldheritage #tourandtravel #北京 #베이징
Spring has sprung ❊✼❋ We came to see the Temple of Heaven, but getting lost in these endless fields of flowers was the true highlight of the day! Anybody else addicted to the spontaneity of travel??
Ещё один шедевр мировой архитектуры - Храм Неба Даже и не скажешь, что его начали строить ещё в 1406 году, выглядит очень свежо, но при этом не теряется дух той эпохи В очередной раз убеждаешься насколько многогранен Пекин, в котором сочетаются инновационные современные здания и сооружения, внесённые в список всемирного наследия человечества) #храмнеба #пекин #китай #всемирноенаследиеюнеско #путешествие #templeofheaven #beijing #china #travel #travelblog #pauliktraveler #travelblogger

The Temple of Heaven is absolutely my favourite place in Beijing. Earth was represented by a square and Heaven by a circle; several features of the temple complex symbolise the connection of Heaven and Earth, of circle and square. The whole complex is surrounded by two cordons of walls; the outer wall has a taller, semi-circular northern end, representing Heaven, and a shorter, rectangular southern end, representing the Earth. 🌏 #templeofheaven #天坛 #heaven #天堂 #earth #地球 #beijing #北京 #china #中国
