This is the ceiling panel at one of the temples in Beijing's Temple of Heaven, also know as the Altar of Heaven. It is a veritable riot of colours up there, with each colour supposed to symbolize something distinct. It is said that emperors prayed here along with elaborate rituals and hoped for a good harvest for the whole kingdom.
Additionally, Beijing also has temples dedicated to the sun, moon and earth.
