For the first time in nearly a decade China is issuing new banknotes without the image of Chairman Mao Zedong.

The 10 yuan ($1.5; £0.75) notes instead feature Beijing's new Olympic stadium on the front, with an ancient Greek statue of a discus thrower on the back.

Both are set against the backdrop of the Temple of Heaven, sited in Beijing.

Six million of the new banknotes will be issued, but most notes in circulation will continue to feature Mao - the founder of Communist China.

China openly say they are an athiest nation and tightly control or have a tight grip on almost all religous groups.

i was reading the bbc article about their new bank note and one thing stood out from the rest Temple of Heaven

since they are self proclaimed athiests.
why would they have a Temple in their bank note?
