Unique landmark and architecture with ancient building technique. Located in a big beautiful park where Beijing inhabitants jog, dance, play the flute, sing and practice taichi etc. Great attraction.

We enjoyed walking the Long Corridor to see the Chinese retirees playing card games, chess or knitting. The Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests is really colorful and beautiful. It was a busy tourist day when we were there so difficult to take good photos....More

Many places are swamped with tourists. However, Temple of Heaven isn't all that bad. At the most, just take an hour and a half walk will complete the site.

We visited the Temple of Heaven in the morning and part of the attraction were the groups of retired Chinese people exercising, singing, visiting together on the temple grounds. The beautiful blue Temple of Heaven was apparently constructed entirely of wood, without a single nail!

This space offers interesting historic attractions for tourists. At the top of the temple, those images of the stars and the galaxy are painted. In ancient times, the Chinese kings prayed for rain in this temple. The building and the surrounding gardens have been restored...More

Another huge Beijing attraction. The scale is enormous and it was popular with local tourists being a Saturday. Each of the buildings and ceremonial sites go way back to the 1400's and you can read about the ceremonial animal sacrifices which were practiced in years...More

Tiantandongmen on Line 5. The gate is only about 100m from the exit from the subway. Open this helps.
