I have lived in Beijing for 14 months and I had never been here. So I finally went and I was really impressed. The Lama Temple has always been my favorite tourist stop, and this is now my 2nd favorite place.

Had a good day visiting Temple of heaven. We happened to see alot of parents matchmaking their children in the park. Quite a shocking moment to see it with my own eyes but it's happening in china always.

Interesting history and a nice place to wander around. Enjoyed seeing the classic Chinese architecture, the wood and stone work and all of the vivid colours used in the temples. Well worth a visit.

This complex really is a must see and was a great way to spend a relaxing morning. It took us a few hours to walk around and explore the temples and park-like surroundings.

This impressive religious site was constructed ink the 15th century for the emperor to pay for a good harvest and for the prosperity of the empire. The architecture, as most dynasty constructions, is extravagant and impressive but visitors can only walk around the outside and cannot enter the temple. We went because it was part of a tour we purchased... More

Even at the end of May the Palace and grounds were already hot in 30 + C heat. The crowds were reasonable in the early afternoon. We weren't allowed into the Temple but could see into the large chamber from multiple large doors. Signs in multiple languages explained various aspects of the grounds and Temple. Certainly a must see on... More

A huge place where the kids can run around and stretch their legs. It's really pretty and has lots to see. The whispering wall was too busy to hear anything though.
