Red Stairway Bridge
Red Stairway Bridge is 360 meter long. It leads to the Hall of Prayer of Good Harvests, from south to north, symbolizes the distance between heaven and human world.

The central passage, which is called the way of Spirit, was reserved for the God of Heaven. The east one was for the emperor and the west one for the ministers.

Near the northern end of the bridge there is a platform where the emperor used to change his ritual garment, and a tent was temporarily set up on the occasion.

Function:
The bridge is an axis of the temple and serves as a link connecting two groups of imperial buildings.
