Ritan Park


This is a nice small park with an altar to sacrifice to the sun god, depicted on this wall. The altar itself is just a square platform surrounded by a circle shaped wall, presenting the opposite geometry as the Heaven’s altar in Tiantan Park. The kids climbing on top of the altar really enjoy hearing their voice reflected by the echoing wall.




If there is a pagoda, there is a way. Never a direct one but there is. This is the view on the skyline around the park.


The Russians have their share of companies around here, this being one of the embassy areas of Beijing.
