During the Wei and Jin periods, it became the territory of the Murongs of Xianbei and in the Tang Dynasty, the Balhae Kingdom set up Shenzhou Prefecture here. It was still called Shenzhou in the early Yuan Dynasty but was later renamed Shenyang Lu (a level of government higher than county). It became Shenyangwei (Fort Shenyang) in the Ming Dynasty. Shenyang’s city wall was believed to have been first built during the Warring States Period and reconstructed in the Jin and Yuan dynasties on the foundation of Shenzhou.

The Qing emperors practiced shamanistic rituals at the Tangzi (the ancestral temple of the Qing imperial courts), Temple of Heaven, and the Altar of Earth. The rituals can be roughly divided into two types: worshipping gods (in the morning and evening) and worshipping heaven in the Tangzi. After Huangtaiji assumed the throne, he decreed that ordinary people be forbidden from setting up a Tangzi for worshipping, elevating Tangzi worship to a national event. Rituals were held on the first day of New Year when the emperor would go to the Tangzi in person to practice the heaven-worshipping rituals.
