Morning Mubus Tour to the Mutianyu Great Wall

894 reviews
The Great Wall of China is an ancient fortification, more than 13,000 miles (21,000 kilometers) in length—it’s also China’s top attraction. Parts of the wall are in poor condition or else crowded with visitors. But, on this guided tour, you get to visit the quieter, under-the-radar Mutianyu section, which has also undergone a complete restoration.

I have lived in China for several years, and perhaps I have grown complacent, but temples like this are through all Chinese cities. The architecture, the colours, the history and the landscaping are all lovely. If you have never been to a temple in China, or if you thoroughly enjoy them, go have a look, it is very easy to get to as the metro stops right there. If you have limited time, or if you have seen a few temple complexes before, you can skip it, Beijing has many more sites to explore.

We live in China for several years so for us it was “another buddhist temple” but I believe for new comers it is stunning and unique place :) They care about this landmark, all looks nice, very lively place.

A beautiful and relaxing temple. Very impressive buildings and a great insight into Chinese Buddhist temples. Would recommend if visiting Beijing.

This is one of the finest examples of a functioning Buddhist temple you will find in China. You will see many monks and worshippers burning incense to Buddha and get to walk in and through a number of buildings that the Emperor actually lived in during the 1750's AD. There are many different Buddhist statutes but the most impressive of all is a 50 ft tall wooden Buddha carved from a single sandlewood tree trunk. It is so big that the building had to be built around the Buddha after it had been moved into pace. Worth a look.
