Dressing Terrace

The dressing Terrace is a square stone one surrounded with white marble balustrades. In the occasion of the sacrificial ceremony, on the terrace was erected a yellow brocade canopy. Emperor came here before the ceremony. After he washed his hands and put on the ceremonial dress, he waited here for the opening of the ceremony. After the ceremony, he returned here, and changed his clothes and then left for the Imperial Palace, and hence the popular name of "the Clothes-Changing Terrace".
