Yesterday's post showed the exterior of the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest in the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. This picture, although not very good, shows a part of the interior.

There are 28 columns inside the hall, each made from a single tree trunk. The interior of the hall is unbelievably beautiful.

The picture above was scanned from a slide.
