This park was once an altar for the emperors to pay sacrifice to the Earth God in ancient China. Built in 1530, the altar became a park after the founding of New China. Though the two-story worship terrace in the center has been kept intact, it has become a popular dance spot and practice center for tai ji quan (shadow boxing). During the Spring Festival, a traditional temple fair is held here each year. Various kinds of snacks are served, arts and crafts sold, and various folk dances and songs performed. This is an excellent place to experience local customs. Admission: CNY1.
