Beijing - Day 5

Another day that started with a trip on the underground. The underground is fab here. It costs 2 Yuan to  make any journey, there are clear signs everywhere both in Chinese and English, once you are on the train a simple map with lights shows you are and stations are announced again in both English and Chinese.

The Temple of Heaven.

Is it time for another ice cream yet?

The Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests. The Temple of Heaven complex was used by the Emperor for ceremonies in the spring and autumn that ensured good harvests.

A photo shoot was happening as we wandered around.

Argh! The dragon ate my finger!!!

The Imperial Vault of Heaven.

The Circular Mound Altar.

The Seven Star Stones.
