This was nice to see but not a must do. It's interesting to see the Temple and learn the history but that's about it.

Wether you comprehend the architectural value of the temple of heaven or not, the site is worth visiting. It has a very lovely garden where you can get in touch with old chinese playing chess or dancing etc.

If you have nothing to do in Beijing one afternoon, it's an okay place to take a walk. I have been to Beijing dozens of times, but only visited here one time. There is always something more interesting to do.

Was lovely to walk around these beautiful buildings. Shame you couldn't go inside. We had a guide with us to talk us though each part. It may be worth getting on if your traveling by yourself as it's quite big inside and lots of little interesting fact like the echo wall and wish stone

It was nice to see. I do not think it was anything special though. Still worth the visit. Be sure to visit other attractions before this though.

The Temple was beautiful! We visited in the afternoon, so it was a little crowded but still enjoyable. The museum is small but nice, and the architecture is stunning. Definitely worth a trip.

Like many Beijing sites, the Temple of Heaven is beautiful and historic. But unlike other sites, which are often insanely crowded, it offers places to enjoy some peace and quiet. The Temple is surrounded by Tiantan Park, which is quite expansive. Beijingers come to the park to walk, play Chinese chess or simply sit on benches.

Lots of people, hot but interesting to visit. It' in a park and it's nice to see the Chinese people enjoying their free time:music, playing with their kids.
