I visited this temple as it is near to my hotel. Located in the city center, this temple is under visited by tourists. When i was there, less than 10 visitors wandered around. With 10yuan entrance fee, the temple has very quiet and serene ambiance...More

Really original Taoist temple in downtown Beijing. It seems quite small from outside but after getting in you will find enormous 2 courtyards with hips of small room/departments for every god and so much more!

It is so quiet in this temple. There is plenty to absorb and ponder while walking through the temple. While passing through the different departments, I realized that even if I don't practice Daoism, a lot of their teachings are being taught and practiced in...More

This Taoist temple was old, unrenovated, but with 76 rooms depicting varied sections of Buddhist Hell. It was marvellous. Taoism is a very old and strange religion with many depictions of animal headed people not unlike Egyptian and Hindu religions. We were the only people...More

This is a hidden gem in my opinion. Tucked away on a main road, this temple is a vast complex of worship halls and statues. The entrance fee is minimal but there is so much to see inside. No real food or drink outlets here...More

We visited this temple because it was near our hotel, pretty out-of-the way from the big sights in Beijing. There was hardly anyone else there, making it quiet, peaceful, easy to stroll through and take your time, which was especially nice since we had just...More
