Ditan Park Tours – Beijing, China
About this place
The Temple of the Earth, or Dìtán in Beijing, China, is located in the northern part of central Beijing, around the Andingmen area and just outside of Beijing's second ring road. It is also located just a few hundred yards north of Yonghe Temple. At 42.7 hectares, it is the second largest of the four Temples of Beijing behind only the Temple of Heaven.
It was built in 1530 during the Ming dynasty. Emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasty dynasties would attend the annual summer solstice ritual of offerings to the heaven.
Since the 1980s, traditional temple fairs have been held regularly during the Chinese lunar new year.
