Beijing has numerous temples and sites to choose from but this is worth a morning visit as its surrounded by peaceful gardens with locals doing what they do in China. The temple itself is also worth a visit, but lacks character as so many others in the main towns do without any of the furnishings visible which would add so... More

Good spot for both its artistic and historical significance. I just get turned off by the hordes of tour groups who are rather unruly and obnoxious.

Nothing special, just go there and take a look and go. Too many kids there. It has washrooms and place to buy food .

Put on your walking shoes and feel the history on how the emperors prayed for good harvest and well being of their people. The number 9 returns many times.

Another not to miss in Beijing; As with many of the sites around the city it gets pretty busy and there's a fair bit of walking. We went in the evening and it wasn't too crowded but by the time we left the light was fading. If you wait your turn it's possible to stand on the spot where the... More

I like this place because Senior People is really happy playing games with other seniors. The place is so clean and greenish. The temple scenery is very clean and unique!

The Temple of Heaven is very picturesque. But I really enjoyed our walk through the park getting there. The locals were out exercising for the morning. Some were playing board games or playing instruments. Great photo opportunity!

My better half and I visited this landmark temple during our visit to Beijing. It certainly deserved to declared as a UNESCO heritage site as it is truly a beautiful showcase of the fabulous ancient Chinese architecture. It is a colourful circular temple on a square base symbolizing the heaven and earth. It was built almost six decades ago during... More

A unique experience-unlike anything I have ever visited. Need quite a lot of energy to climb up. We were very lucky as we visited during APEC so the air quality was excellent.
