It is a superb construction, especially considering it was rebuilt. Made of wood and not a nail used anywhere. I loved the painting inside - although you can't actually enter the temple, but you have push your camera into the doorway to take pics. We enjoyed the walk through the park to get here, as well as the actual temple.... More

The Temple of Heaven is an amazing location- between the architecture, trees and plants- it is lovely. I was there in winter and can only imagine what it would be like in summer

The border between sky and earth in my opinion.....you need a ticket to enter Tiantan garden, then another ticket to enter the temple....Incredible

I still cannot get it out of my mind of how you can construct such a beautiful structure built with a bazillion wooden beams and ZERO nails. The entire surrounding complex is just as stunning

My husband and I visited the Temple of Heaven as part of our Nexus Holiday tour. Unfortunately it was showering when we visited, so we didn't stay long. The temple itself is beautiful with very intricate and beautiful patterns on it. There are also other surrounding buildings, one of which has pictures and information about its history. There were also... More

The Temple of Heaven was okay for 30min or so but after that it got old seeing the same looking buildings everywhere. The buildings were cool and from here you can see a good 360 view of Beijing, however it was kind of boring and not worth the money we paid to get in. However this is from a teenagers... More

Besides all the history of this place I particularly enjoyed the architecture and bright colours of the buildings. We were staying near by and walked over to the temple. The sight is mesmerising and I will return when back in Beijing as it's so pretty and of historical significance!
