Description of the sights of China brings us to the idea of an encyclopedia. In this country there are so many remarkable places that are interesting for tourists that talking about a short list is even somehow offensive. The names of the sights of China include museums and temples, both Buddhist and other religions and faiths. These are whole streets and cities, areas and natural parks, mountains and bays, rivers and deserts. These are gorges and rocks of an unusual shape, these are temples hanging on the rocks, and bridges of a futuristic look.


Cryptocurrency travel to Chinese culture: Visit Palace Museum and Temple of Heaven


The Palace Museum

Housing over 690,000 artefacts, the National Palace Museum in Taipei is a treasure trove of Chinese culture. Evacuated from the Forbidden City to Taiwan in 1948 amidst the panic of the Chinese Civil War, the collection provides an in-depth view of the beauty of Chinese history from the Neolithic to the modern era.


The National Palace Museum, founded in 1965 in the Shilin district of Taipei, Taiwan, currently houses over 690,000 artefacts from the Neolithic to the modern era with the majority of the items coming from the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties. The collection covers over 8,000 years of Chinese history, and is the largest collection of ancient Chinese artefacts and artworks in the world.


Temple of Heaven

The Temple of Heaven Park, Tiantan in Chinese, is located in the Dongcheng District, Beijing. It is the largest and most representative existing masterpiece among China's ancient sacrificial buildings. Originally, the Temple of Heaven was the place where emperors of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) and Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911) held the Heaven Worship Ceremony. First built in 1420, the 18th year of the reign of Emperor Yongle of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), the Temple of Heaven was enlarged and rebuilt during the reigns of the Ming emperor Jiajing and the Qing emperor Qianlong. In 1988, it was opened to the public as a park, showing ancient philosophy, history and religion. Its grand architectural style and profound cultural connotation give an insight into the practices of the ancient Eastern civilization.
