Lovely park, very well manicured. Spent some time there on a Saturday and there were a lot of people there, with some older locals singing and dancing. The walk up to the Buddha on top of the hill is well worth it as it gives the best view of the incredible size of the Forbidden City that you don't see... More

After visiting the Forbidden city, we made the long walk up to an amazing view, unequaled from the ground. It was a challenging walk up, but once there the view of the Beijing as well as the Forbidden City was unparalleled.

I loved the park. It was beautiful and had a great view of the Forbidden City, if you climb to the top where the Buddhist Temple is. We stopped and saw some beautiful calligraphy, which I would have purchased, but the cost was too much. We then went to a tea house for a tea ceremony. I loved it. The... More

For such a cheap price why not?! Although quite a walk to get all the way to the top it was definitely worth it! The view is incredible and the golden buddah is amazing! A must go to!

When walking in Forbidden City, it is extremely difficult to comprehend how huge the area actually is. Well it all actualizes when watching Forbidden City from the Jingshan Park, so this place is definitely worth of going. Very small entrance fee.

After visiting the forbidden city and exiting from the back entrance, continue walking to the right and take the first road to left. You'll have to pay to enter 1 rmb. Take the steps up to the temple, and there you'll see the forbidden city from above.

We were not planning on this park visit but it was an unexpected blessing of being at the north gate of the Forbidden City. The park is beautiful and the temples worth climbing to if only for the breathtaking views of the city. You will get a view of the Forbidden City you could not get anywhere else.

If you see the forbidden city, you must go here too. You will see the whole forbidden city, and the oldtown of Beijing. You wil bee limited in hte sightseeing if it is smog. The air here is good, and smells well.
