The Interior Scene of the Divine Music Administration

The Divine Music Administration is located in the southwestern part of the Temple of Heaven, covering an area of nearly 10,000 square meters and consisting of many courtyards. As an academy of ceremonious music of both the Ming and Qing Dynasties, it offered special institutions and professionals to conduct training for performers of sacrificial music and dancing, and in its zenith period, more than 3,000 people received the training at the same time. Highly valued in the terms of art and culture, the Divine Music Administration is regarded as one of the five major architectures in the Temple of Heaven. Now we have built a musical museum here to preserve a part of our Chinese history.
