The Column Foundations of the Sacrificial Hall

In the outer enclosure of the Temple of Heaven there was a Sacrificial Hall (not existing today) where the cattle were raised for the use of the sacrificial rituals in the altars. The hall covered an area of five room units housing the "god of sacrifice". During the construction work in recent years the column foundations were discovered and removed inside the altar for preservation.
