It is quite far to the west of the city. This place comprises of different temples that you explore on foot and staircases. Buddha from different origins, goddess of mercy temple, and generally you can make offerings here unlike some temples in the city center.

Not so many western tourists the Sunday we visited this pearl of Beijing. Eight interesting Buddha temples which are active with praying visitors and monks. Lovely wood / park on hills - a nice contrast to the flat city of Beijing east of Badachu. A cable car to hilltop for those who have tired feet. Highly recommended site!
