I am impressed with the structure and architecture, they really really think of everything when build this temple, great history as well. Less crowded than forbidden city, go to this place if you stay longer in Beijing

A wonderful place to visit and observe the day to day recreational, social and exercise activities of the locals. When we were there we were delighted by a large chorus of at least 200 locals.

This is a very popular destination for the Chinese and tourists so try to arrive early as it becomes incredibly busy later in the day. You will see locals playing all kinds of sports and martial arts, dancing, singing, playing instruments- fascinating. You can join in too. The Temple is a stunning structure with lots of historical detail. There is... More

Get the full price ticket (rmb35) which will get you admission to all the attractions. Otherwise each attraction there is (rmb20 each). When you get in, just walk straight all the way and it'll take you to heaven. It is a place with lots of tourists obviously. Go on a day when it is not too hot or go in... More

Value wise, you might as well buy the through pass since the price for the entrance ticket and the price for the The Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest ticket is the same price as the through pass, which includes a few other buildings. The Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests is beautiful and the pictures just don't do it... More

We visited the park on Sunday when all the people came out to dance, tai chi and have picnics. It was great to people watch and to view all the buildings and temples. You could spend a lot of time here especially on a sunny day.

The Park, and the Temple of Heaven within, is very easy to reach on the Beijing Metro system - Tiantandongmen metro stop is at the entrance to the park. There is a supposedly one ticket for everything in the park (Apart for the fasting temple - or something similar). Either way it's not too expensive. We bought a souvenir map... More
