Rounded Kiosk in Temple of Heaven Park

This is one of the best kiosk I have seen, the design is amazing. This photo was taken in Temple of Heaven Park in China, Temple of Heaven is a complex of religious building that was visited by the Emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties for annual ceremonies of prayer to Heaven for good harvest.

Most of the Chinese in this park has their own activities like dancing, singing and even sports. So you are not going to be surprised if you saw them on group enjoying each others company.
