The Temple of Heaven, a 600-year-old royal altar and a UNESCO world heritage site, celebrated its 100th anniversary of opening to the public on Friday with an exhibition covering its history.

 

The exhibition, with 217 items and over 300 pictures, presented the temple’s history of transitioning from a royal altar to a public park.

 

Built in 1420, the Temple of Heaven was where Ming and Qing Dynasty emperors worshipped heaven for good harvests. It was turned into a public park in 1918 after the demise of China’s final dynasty.

 

2018 also marks the 20th anniversary of its inclusion in the UNESCO world heritage list.

 

"We hope to prompt the dissemination of our cultural legacy, and to attract people’s attention to treasure our traditional culture," said Li Gao, head of the Temple of Heaven Park during the opening ceremony.

 

"This exhibition also shows China’s achievements in the protection of our cultural heritage and the promotion of the park’s landscape," said Li.

 

Before 1918, the temple was an off-limits royal sanctuary. The temple received nearly 20 million visitors in 2017.

 

Located in southern Beijing, the Temple of Heaven covers an area of 270 hectares, and is one of the largest existing architectural complexes in the world, with a collection of over 12,000 artifacts.
