The Temple of Heaven is one of the iconic symbols of ancient China.

The temple of heaven is a must see place in Beijing...it is very big so good walking shoes are needed. You can see all sorts of activities going on. Singing dancing Tai chi and various other things. There are place to get snacks. The earlier you go the more local stuff you will see

One of the 'must see' experiences of Beijing. The lovely temple is set in large grounds in a pleasant setting. Basic facilities including toilets, shops and refreshments.

This is a beautiful building and a must do activity for traveler to Beijing. The painting of the outside is exquisite and the history behind the temple is fascinating.
