You will see multiple generations of singing, dancing, fencing, kites, music, and dress. This is really a collection of old and new China in a park setting. It is great to slowly mingle and sit and mix with the locals. It is a real cultural experience.

My husband and I visited Beijing in 2002. We book a guide and driver and they took us to many different places in Beijing including the Temple of Heaven. It is an amasing site and for those like us a historical treasure that must be visited and admired. Our guide will tell us the history and stories behind the temple... More

A "must" if you're in Beijing. It's quite big and it's necessary at least half a day to visit all the place.

The temple buildings are very impressive and beautiful from the outside. However, keep in mind that you cannot go into the 2 main temple buildings. Also, they are not illuminated and are dim. But, you can take pictures or use selfie sticks on your camera to get a better angle. Try to book reservations for the park ahead of time... More

In the large complex of the Temple of Heaven, be prepared to walk. We found a lot of tourist attractions, old man / old lady play traditional games of China. There is a lot of trees in the park. Tips for backpacker (without tour) that use MRT, please remember the entrance gate / door, because exit gate / door will... More

Walking into the park surrounding The Temple of Heaven is really surreal. One minute, you're surrounded by the loud noises common to a city and then a few steps later you feel as if you're in the countryside. I was lucky to go on a day that was rainy so there were very few people and it was an amazing... More

not as majestic as grand palace but i was still in awe how could the King back then travel so far by horse/foot/human carried all the way from the grand palace. Its an amazing structure but the crowds can be quite a turn off!

The mall has like 6 floors filled with shops. There's not much to do other than shopping. There are some nice souvenir shops, including one that sells wood made stuff.

The historical buildings are interesting enough, but the highlight of my visit to the park was watching a group of fairly old men doing gymnastics on the parallel bars and high(ish) bars. I've never seen that in Australia! I really enjoyed watching the locals use the public spaces.
