About Beijing Working People's Cultural Palace

Beijing Working People's Cultural Palace is also known as Taimiao. Taimiao was the imperial ancestral temple during the Ming and Qing Dynasties; it is located on the east side of Tiananmen Square and is surrounded by walls on all four sides. The cypress trees in Taimiao are relatively famous; there are many ancient cypress trees in the park that are hundreds of years old and are key targets of China's cultural relics protection program. Taimiao was built during the 18th year of the reign of the Ming Dynasty's Yongle Emperor. It was rebuilt several times during the years of the Jiajing Emperor, the Wanli Emperor, and the Qing Dynasty's Shunzhi Emperor. The architecture of Taimiao is beautiful, with multiple pavilions, gorgeous glass doors, and stone bridges. After the founding of the People's Warlord Era, the temple was changed to the Beijing Working People's Cultural Palace. Nowadays, there are often activities held here, such as book fairs.
