I went with a friend met in the hotel. Great place with an amazing view to the town. Also the gardens that surround the temple have to be seen and spend some time wandering around.

This place has very nice atmosfere. For sure, buy combo ticket for all places (not so expensive), because everything is paid than. If you will be lucky, you can watch old men drawing water caligraphy in park. Very interesting.

The gardens/park around the Temple of Heaven are beautiful…60,000 trees are planted throughout the park. The Temple and buildings were built without the use of a single nail or cement…which is amazing to ponder, when you look at the size and scale of everything. Make sure you take time to read all the little signs posted throughout and tour all... More

To enjoy this place, you need to go a bit zen. Enjoy the gardens and the buildings. Ignore the pushy crowd and the noise. The gardens and old trees are to be enjoyed and appreciated and the Central Tian Tan building itself is amazing. Take some time to enjoy the museum which highlights the history of this former temple.

Lots of classic Chinese architecture and some green and space, which is rare in BJ. Try going early morning before the Chinese tourists get there. You'll thanks yourself later.

Very busy place needs to be better organised, too many people in at the sme time. Still worth visiting and not to be missed.

Brilliant architecture embedded in a beautiful park. Although there are quite a few people they are 'distributed' in a way that it does not get too crowded. The temple leaves a lasting impression with all its colours!

Maybe I'm wrong, maybe we were at the wrong (Southern) entrance to the park, but when we tried to enter the park (Around 17:45), we were told that the temple is already closed... Even the park wasn't impressive at all... If you want to visit the temple and the park, CHECK where is the best way to get inside, and... More
