This is where the action is in Beijing. When I retire, I want to go there every day to sing, dance, play the sax, do tai chi, whirl like a dervish, play mah Jong, and play tennis. So much to see for the nature and human activity. Temple is beautiful. Check out the middle of the park where a bunch... More

Its nice to see the locals hanging around the grounds. Took a private tour guide for the day so we stopped by here for about 45 minutes to an hour. After a while a lot of the places look the same because the architecture, design, colors, styles are very similar if not the same.

A nice park and a beautiful temple. I cannot really write much about it. A not interactive sight. You can round the temple, but that's all, yet worth visiting.

The whole grounds were interesting, but I especially liked the round hall of prayer for Good Harvests. Got priceless photos at sunset.

There are three impressive temples to amaze you. The best is Imperial Vault of Heaven the middle temple with the surrounding echo wall. Its a long walk from south to north so take your time there are nice artifacts a admire too.

One of the many sights in and around Beijing that is a must see. It is not just a single structure that makes this a great place, it is the beautiful grounds leading to the entrance where the Hall of Prayer and Good Harvest is located. if you have been to Disney World's Epcot Center you have seen a replica...
