Not the easiest access, but worth the detour. Bring a tripod for your pictures, and a wide angle. And extra batteries!!

We visited here as part of a day tour of Beijing, that includes the Summer Palace, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. The park itself if gorgeous. Many locals congregate here to stroll, exercise.People living close by come here to enjoy long walks and fresh air as the parks surrounding the Temple of Heaven are big and you can find... More

Great architecture. must get there before everyone else. once the mass tourists group show up, you're basically f-ed. a tip is go early through the north gate, you will get to Qi nian dian first (most iconic architecture of the bunch), and it is the best, and if you get their first like 7am, you get the ancient and holy...

The park is full of senior citizens in the morning - singing, dancing, playing cards. The place is buzzing! Try to go early so not to miss this. Great photograph opportunities. Temple is well looked after, vibrant colours.

A must see while in Beijing - plan to see when visiting Tiananmen Square ( across the road) worth a look at with plenty of Chinese culture to be seen and learnt.

It was CNY when we visited so fairly busy, however cheap to get in, although you do have to pay again when in the park to see the actual main temple! Still worth it, and one worth seeing whilst in Beijing

The beliefs and connections of the Temple of Heaven were fascinating to listen to along our walk. Our tour guide described the plan of the Temple and how each part is represented including the sacrifices and the reason the center of the universe is believed here.

The Temple of Heaven (Tiantan) is one of the most significant remaining sights in Beijing associated with the Ming and Qing imperial eras, definitely worth a visit even if only in Beijing for a few days. A 'through' ticket will give you access to each of the main structures within the site. Wandering the surrounding park areas and seeing people... More

Going through would recommend seeing the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests, the Imperial Vault of Heaven and the Echo Wall, and the Circular Mound Altar. These are all included with the "through" ticket. It should not take more than 1-2 hours or a morning to get to all of these places. As we went on a Sunday, just as... More
