Local residents experience harvesting millet crops in a small pitch of farming field inside the Temple of Agriculture in central Beijing on September 24 as part of a harvest festival hosted by the Beijing Ancient Architecture Museum. The Temple of Agriculture, also known as Xiannongtan, was originally built in 1420 and used as a religious site during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties.
