Sitting high above the Forbidden City on the north side, is a 3 tiered structure housing a Buddha. It is a moderate climb up the man made hill, (soil from the moat surrounding the Imperial Palace), which provides a spectacular view of the Forbidden City. I did not see any wheel chair access route, but the climb is not too... More

In my opinion this park had the best view of the Forbidden City. Definitely worth the 40 yuan to enter the park!

Climbed the hill to the Wanchun Pavilion in 20 minutes to get 360 degree view of the city.

This park across the street is lovely. And not as crowded once you go inside. We walked to the very top and enjoyed panorameric views of FC.

Behind, on the north side, of Forbidden City is this lovely park. It is open until late evening, so you can visit it after other attractions. Climbing up to the hill is worthwhile, on a good weather you have a 360 view over whole Beijing, includong its ancient palaces and temples as well as modern financial districts. There are some...

After a walk in Forbidden City we climbed up to Jingshan and saw the whole of Forbidden city(top view)...it's worth it to go.. We went on summer but did not mind the heat as we climb up.

My fiancé and I visited this park immediately following a day at the forbidden city. At the peak of the park, you can gaze upon the glazed yellow rooftops of the imperial palace below while also seeing the Beijing skyline in the distance. Well worth the admission.

That is what this park is about: Go to the top temple to look at the Forbidden City from above. Of course the walk is nice through the park, but the temple is the must see. Long stairs, but worth it.
