Qixingshi (Seven Star Stones)

Beyond the eastern gate of the Temple of Heaven, there stand seven pieces of massive rock, which were believed to be emblematic of the Dipper high up in the sky, or as the legend goes, which stood for the real Dipper that came down to earth one night to suggest to the Ming rulers a spot for the constructing a heaven-worshipping altar when they did intend to choose one. As such, the Temple of Heaven was built right there.
