Our tour visited this site mid June. Before we went inside the walled perimeter our tour group was taken to a shady spot for some ti chi exercise. I watched from a safe distance. Inside the Temple area was a very big expanse of paved court yard, and on what I suspect as a man made hill in the center... More

The site is amazing and very green here. It cost 15RMB at the main entrance and you get there by subway with one of them right at the East Gate entrance. Once you go in though it will cost you 20RMB to go to each site. I was surprised that I had to pay 20RMB for each site when it... More

We visited the Temple of Heaven as part of a small group tour. We walked through a beautiful garden on the way in. The building is interesting but felt similar to touring the Forbidden city. Of interest was the display regarding the restoration of the complex. If running short of time I suggest you could miss this one.

I went with a guided tour - yeah, it was crowded and the tour guide of course kept rushing us. I didn't get a chance to go near the Temple because I didn't want to spend extra entrance fees and be rushed by the guide anyway. But what fascinated me were the hundred year old - or more - pine...

The entire park is fascinating. 60 yr plus men 'playing' on the gym equipment with more skill and strength than most people I know. 70 plus men playing cards and other games down one walkway, smoking and talking and settled in for the day. Big groups singing patriotic songs. Lone Tai Chi practitioners and big groups of women doing aerobics.... More

Really nice Park and stunning temples. Don't miss it. Beautiful architecture with nice blue and green tiles and some unusual temple structures. Interesting too to see older men playing cards under a baranda. After seeing them there I have subsequently seen men playing cards and other games in various locations around the city.

If you get a chance to visit the Temple of Heaven while you are in Beijing you'll not be disappointed. It's a big park and there is a lot to see as the locals come here to practice Tai Chi, music and various games.
