"Jin Tai Xi Zhao" (Chinese: 金台夕照): The Golden Terrace in the Glow of the Setting Sun


The Golden Terrace is situated at the former Miao Family Estate near the Altar of the Sun (Ritan Park). During the Qing Dynasty, this area originally served as frill grounds for the Manchurian and Mongolian troops of the Emblazoned White Banner. There was once a tall platform called the "Golden Terrace" within the grounds, and on spring and autumn evenings, the sunlight would continue to fall on this terrace for a few minutes once the sun had set.
