The Long Corridor

Five meters in width and 30 meters in length, the Long Corridor is composed of 72 rooms sharing the same back wall, roof and eave; hence it is also called the Seventy-Two Connected Rooms. It is an enclosed passage connecting the Animal-Killing Pavilion, the Divine Kitchen and the Divine Warehouse. On the eve of the sacrificial ceremony, the corridor was lit up by lanterns and all the offerings, including jade, silk, grains and fruits were transported to the altars along the Long Corridor.
