Temple of Heaven resumes Ancient Worship Ceremony



After a three-year break, Beijing's Temple of Heaven is once again holding its Heaven worship ceremony during this year's Spring Festival.

The 90-minute show includes the royal procession parade, worship dance and ancient musical performances. The show, which involves 288 performers, will run daily from February 6 to 11.

Ming and Qing dynasty emperors often retreated to the Temple of Heaven, built in 1420, to worship Heaven and pray for a bountiful harvest.
