We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Built in 1530, it has square altars and walls in line with the ancient chinese concept of a square earth. The high terrace on the left is the Altar of Earth, while the two square stone terraces on the right represent the country's great mountains and rivers respectively, as indicated by the carvings on them.

According to ancient Chinese belief, heaven is round, while earth is square. So, the Temple of Earth's construction included many square altars and walls.

This magnificent temple consists of five main buildings arranged on the north-south axis, with annexed halls flanking both sides. The Chinese government has listed the temple among the most important historical monuments under special preservation.
