Each gate has its own function.

As the most holy temple of Beijing Imperial temples, the temple of Heaven was the place for the Emperor to come to worship heaven and pray for a good harvest every winter solstice in ancient times. The Temple of Heaven was firstly constructed during the reign of Ming Emperor YongLe and lasted for 14 years. It was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List In 1998.The ancient craftsmen adopt elaborate symbolism and numerology to build so it contains a lot of Chinese ancient cultures.

Summer Palace is located in the Haidian District and covers an expanse of 2.9 square kilometers. It is not only an entertainment place for emperors during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), but also an administrative area for emperor.
