Wonderful place, the temple of heaven dominates the complex, but the grounds shows what a magnificent people the Chinese are. Such details from space arrangements to ornaments

I visited this in May 2015. I would recommend to schedule half a day as the area is vast. Maybe it would be a good idea to rent a bycicle which I tried but couldn't figure out how the station worked. Nice area if parkland and temples, not spectacular bur worth a visit.

We enjoyed our visit to the temple and the surrounding park. The paintings are incredibly and intricate and wonderfully done. It was great to see the local people out and about exercising and doing Tai Chi. It is a busy place but then again it is China and all. However the are is massive and we used a cab to... More

There are the buildings but we enjoyed seeing the park life, dancing/tai chi/yoga/card playing and seeing the squads working on the gardens. On the day we visited there were 5 different wedding groups getting photos taken - very friendly people everywhere.

This 5A historical temple is within short walking distance from Tiantan Station, Exit A. Do expects some walking and try to allocate at least 2 hrs for this attraction. Same as the Palace Museum, buildings inside this Tian Tan Park is built on woods, without a single nail. During ancient Ming & Qing Dynasty, the Emperors travelled from Forbidden City... More

Walked in tired and stressed after a night train from Xi'an. And it all just fell away. A place I could sit for hours - and that was just in the park. Absolutely glorious! And a must add for the bucket list!

If alli you want to do is see the site, you can do so and you will have a very pleasant walk and see some great buildings, lots of local people exercising or writing Chinese symbols on the concrete and you can even read a little about it on some of the signs. If you want this to be a... More

We ended our day at the Temple of Heaven and the crowds were leaving as we arrived, so I could actually get photo's without people in them. This temple is a bit different from many of the others we had seen in the area, as it's round and colorful - very nice spot with views of the area.

I took my family to see one of the famous sites here in Beijing. It's one of those must see places when you are here, after The Forbidden City. The temple structures are impressive and there are signs in English that tells you some of the history in detail. You can also see the Chinese residents doing things they like... More

Visited here early on a Saturday morning so though it was early, it was getting busy. Entrance is 15 RMB to the park, additional 20 RMB to the Temple. Temple is beautiful and interesting but the park I felt was even more interesting. It is full of local people taking a morning stroll, taking part in Tai Chi, and also... More
