This is a place where locals go for the park. Elderly people play games over here, or take a nap. It's really fun to watch them. If you're lucky you can see some tai chi. The temple itself is impressive. Prepare for a big walk around the premises.

The park was beautiful and a great place to walk around. That being said my favorite part was the people watching. We were there on a weekend morning and saw older men doing quite literal gymnastics on the jungle gyms, saw lots of dancing and aerobics, and saw a very enthusiastic ribbon dancer. Definitely worth your time and definitely worth... More

I went to view this temple at 12pm. Give yourself enough time to see everything! I paid 10 RMB to gain entry through the North Gate. There was another ticket option which was more expensive available too, unfortunately i did not find out those details. The basic entry fee allowed you into the grounds. However i later found out i... More

We were there during the winter. And it was really-really cold out there, but there were only couple of tourists! Let's say it was a perfect time for it! The only problem was that we had to pay for the park itself and after for each attraction like the Temple or etc. 10-20 CNY each.

this complex is enormous - buy the full ticket, get there early (you cannot enter all the attractions after the afternoon!), and give yourself lots of time. I loved the atmosphere - the trees, the locals playing games and doing tai-chi. get away from the packs going straight to the temple attractions - which are absolutely worth it - and... More

This park is huge! It has a lot of really nice old buildings to look at that all have a lot of history to tell. Also a good place to go if you want to see birds, which may sound surprising but if you live in China, birds are few and far between. Would highly recommend a visit to this... More

Temple itself is good looking. Other than that you can take a look at echo place and park itself. Total ticket costs 40 rmb. Or you can buy separate tickets for each place but it would be more expensive.
