Day 77 (24.04.2007)


Today I went to the Temple of Heaven again, but this time I was more in the south at the House of Heavenly Lord and the Altar of Heaven. Like the Hall of Annual Prayer the House of Heavenly Lord is also circular, but it is smaller and has got only one roof. The roofs of the Hall of Annual Prayer and of the House of Heavenly Lord consists of dark blue glazed roof tiles. In the House of Heavenly Lord and in the buildings besides there were important boards for the sacrifice ceremonies. The House of Heavenly Lord is surrounded by the Echo Wall. When somebody says something inside the Echo Wall everyone who is also inside the Echo Wall can hear it. In the south of the Temple of Heaven there is the Altar of Heaven. It is a circular marble terrace with three levels. On the Altar of Heaven the emperor made sacrifices to the Heaven. The House of Heavenly Lord and the Altar of Heaven were built in 1530. At the end of the day I went to the Hall of Annual Prayer again.
