Temple of Heaven, Beijing

The Temple of Heaven complex dates back to the 1400s

Intricate Chinese details on the buildings

I love the structures on top of the gates – they look like they are going to take off any minute

The grounds of the Temple of Heaven is huge. We walked away from the buildings and found ourselves a nice quite spot to sit and read

A beautiful series of photos on the Temple of Heaven (although you got that typical dusty Beijing sky). I am inspired to go back...

How long was your trip. Looks like you have a great time. How many generations away from China are you?
