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.

The Temple of Heaven is really an impressive 675 acre park that is a haven of tranquility for the local Beijing residents while attracting tourists visiting the many ancient buildings located within the park. The most recognized building, Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest, is only one of several examples of the Ming and Qing architecture. This Hall is fascinating... More

Wonderful park and a great place to chill out and escape the bustle and noise of this huge city. Get the through ticket since its pretty cheap and the places you get to access are pretty cool. We saw people bird watching with ridiculously professional camera equipment, dancing, doing tai chi. In that sense its a typical Chinese park but... More

Visited Jan 6th and paid 28 yuan to see temple of heaven, imperial vault and circular mounds. Super cheap. Huge place. Enjoyed watching the elderly exercising and playing board games on the premises. Was a little let down by the imperial vault but after the sheer size of Temple. But well worth the trip. Took the subway from my hostel... More

This was definitely my favorite place on Beijing. Similar to other attractions, it was a very large complex with lots to see-but I did not get tired at all! It was like walking in an area with lots of trees and benches to sit down, then you can just go to the temple when you please. It was perfect and... More

Interesting learning of how the emperor assimilate the religious practices of the people in offerings and prayers to the heavenly god at summer and winter solstice. Interesting parallels to other cultures in building and worshiping traditions. The round and wooden building technics have similarities in African cultures and Ethiopian and ancient Norwegian wooden Stave Churches among others. A must see... More

It was built hundreds of years as the worship place by the emperors. It's full of symbols of Chinese culture and architect.
