Aka WuTa temple translated as temple of five pagoda. Located right behind bejing zoo, however its best reached by alighting at subway station GuoJiaTuShuGuan literally national library station. Then take a short walk of 10-15mins and you will know you are there once the top of the pagodas are visible. Free entry and have to go through security as typical of all places of interests in China. Much could be done to explain the history of the pagoda and the people behind it.

a secret beautiful pagoda in downtown Beijing
Feb 2017 • Family
Beautiful buildings and stone carvings near the north-west 2nd ring road with few tourists. It used to be the royal "zhenjue" temple of Tibetan Buddhism in Ming dynasty. Now local people call it Wuta Si, the temple with five pagodas, because on top of the temple set five pagodas. Around the temple are the vivid ancient sculptures of Buddhism. The two gingko trees in front of the pagodas are also hundreds years old. It also provides toys about stone carving for kids in the backyard. Very good place for family with young kids.

newly renovated museum; great showcase of stone carvings
Jan 2016 • Solo
It's a 750 meter walk (10 min) from exit C of the National Library metro station on line 4 or 9. The museum is newly renovated. All the exhibit rooms are refreshed or new. There's a children's play area with a variety of activities and a rock climbing wall!! I was impressed with the indoor exhibits as everything was beautifully arranged and displayed with English signs with good detail. There was also small scale models of village of life in ancient times. This included hologram images of animated actors portraying life. These images really enhanced the dullness of the model. The indoor exhibits showcase stone archways, Buddha images, and calligraphy inscriptions.

The outdoor exhibits showcase the majority of the stone carvings which are mostly tall standing steles and tombstone caps. There's also a garden maze that has calligraphy rubbing templates (Calligraphic Model Maze). There are benches to relax and enjoy the view of Zhenjue Temple which sits in the middle of the courtyard. This is a beautiful site.

The entrance ticket includes admittance to the Zhenjue temple (Diamond Throne Pagoda). On Wednesdays, the first 200 visitors are free. Otherwise 20 RMB for adults.

The rear entrance of the Beijing Zoo is opposite the entrance of this museum.
