Ditan Park, just north (and slightly west) of the Lama Temple outside Beijing's north second ring road, is a 40 acre square of towering pine and cypress trees. It was constructed in 1530 during the Ming dynasty as a place where emperors of both the Ming and subsequent Qing dynasties could perform sacrifices to the gods for good harvests, auspicious weather and a stable nation.
