    Tian Tan

      "Tian Tan" is a sacred place of worship built specifically for the Chinese emperors to pay respect to heaven and earth. The architecture of the Hall and the Altar of Heaven is based on the design of a sphere which is derived from the ancient Chinese belief that "heaven" is round.
      From the historical records of China, "Kok Sue" is the person directly responsible for the construction of Tian Tan. "Kok" in Chinese means "kingdom" and "Sue" means "professor". Therefore, Kok Sue can literally be translated as "Professor of the Kingdom".
      Kok Sue was a nobleman with supreme power and was given the task of managing and determining the kingdoms overall affairs, and in particular, the policy and strategies concerning wars, all of which were meant to be strictly adhered to by the emperor himself. In the event that a Kok Sue failed to convince the emperor to abide by any issue, the Kok Sue in question would be instantly dismissed.
