Recommendation by Lemi

Marvel at the magnificent examples of Chinese religious architecture at Temple of Heaven. Several Ming Dynasty buildings dot the massive 270-acre area. The most striking landmark is the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests, whose dark blue roof calls to the heavens. Its three-tier, circular marble-based structure is a feat of design, supported only by 28 pillars (and zero nails!). For centuries, emperors conducted worship ceremonies here to ask for good weather and an abundant harvest.
