This complex of religious buildings southeast of the Forbidden City received emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties for annual harvest ceremonies. The site is imbued with symbolism and meaning; circles (representing Heaven) and squares (representing Earth) are recurring motifs. To make the most out of your trip, head to Hongqiao Pearl Market afterwards for some bargain shopping.
