The Temple itself has been beautifully restored/rebuilt and it worth walking around for 20-30 minutes. The rest of the park has great people watching. It seems like on a weekend morning this park becomes a gym, living room and performance space for locals and it is a ton of fun just walking around. It is also a nice respite from... More

My mother, son and I went here on our second day in Beijing. WOW!! gorgeous and peaceful, even with the large crowd of people there. Our tour group even got to witness a photo shoot for a young couple who just got married. Really is a bit of heaven amongst the concrete jungle of Beijing, my only complaint is that... More

This was an amazing place to see. Everything is spead out and you can walk forever and see some really cool buildings. Some of the buildings date back to 1500's it was really amazing to see how these building look and how well they are maintained. Great place to go and just wander around and take in all the sights.

Temple of Heaven is a beautiful place to visit - all in blue to resemble the heavens. In the past it was a place where they did animal sacrifices and although you can't access the Temple of Heaven you can have a look what is inside through the open doorways. Like everywhere in China it is clean with a lot... More

The towering Temple of Heaven sits in the southern part of Beijing, as an imperial reminder that at least 4 times a year, the Emperor would visit for prayers and the give homage to the heavens for the seasons, the harvest and the wealth of his people. The Temple was first constructed in 1420, started by Emperor Yongle of the... More

Temple and other sights here are very nice, but the best part is just go to some part of the park where you can escape the crowds and enjoy the piece and quite for a while. Btw through ticket is 35 RMB and applies for all places in the park, so you don't have to buy another one infront of... More

The harvest temple, an ancient circular structure is the center-piece of this quiet retreat away from the busy city, but equally interesting is the view of thousands of local citizens, many of them elderly playing all kinds of games from card and board games to Tai-Chi to dancing and kicking a ball / shuttle cock combo and racket games.

My favorite place in Beijing. It is beautiful and large enough to absorb the crowds that gather. The bathrooms were cleaner than most public bathrooms we found in China. There are "non sactioned" vendors selling trinkets inside. Language issues caused confusion for our group, so just be specific with what you are trying to get. There used to be a... More
