Description

The Yongle Emperor, who also founded the Forbidden City, built the Ming Temple, the Temple of Heaven or Tian Tan. The buildings are rich in symbolic detail - variants on the number nine that the emperor served. Heaven and earth are depicted by coloured glazes; the months of the year are represented by pillars.
