the hall is pretty cool, you cant go inside, but only take pictures from the open doors and windows. The entire temple of heaven park was remarkable, but this buildilng made for some of the better photos, despite the crowds.

Avoid the weekends and public holidays to avoid the crowds. Wonderful location and the guide explanation of the use of this location during the various dynasties was greatly appreciated.

The Temple of Heaven is iconic, and the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest is the first image that comes to mind when talking about it. The architecture is simply stunning. Arrive early to avoid most of the crowds.

This building is the most prominent building at the Temple of Heaven site. You can walk up a set of stairs on the outside of the building to get a 360-degree view of surrounding area.
