The Temple of Heaven was a sacred site visited by the emperor only twice a year where he made animal sacrifices to ensure a good harvest and prosperity for China. One only has to imagine the procession from the Forbidden City to the Temple of Heaven that carried the emperor to and from the Temple. The surrounding park is quite... More

This was on my list of places to see and it is worth stopping by. Lots of history and on the grounds you'll find locals playing cards and other games- interesting to watch. Worth the visit.

The place does not need introduction and it deserves its world fame. We decided to arrive early to beat the crowds and it was a good idea, after exploring the complex for about 2 hours we saw gigantic crowds arriving! In any way, it is indeed a must see in Beijing.
