Many tour groups come to the Temple of Heaven to see this group, but totally ignore the famous scenic spots – such as the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests. It is interesting to note that some old people from the travel group were inspired by their inspirations and attitudes, and they even joined alongside them to use the facilities and do exercise.
