We came across this echo wall when we entered the temple of Heaven complex. Too many tourists around and it was pretty noisy for us to try shouting and listening for the echo. It was circular and under quiet conditions, you can probably hear the echoes.

The Echo Wall (also known as “The whispering wall”) surrounds the Imperial Vault of Heaven. Due to the shape and materials of the wall, it is possible to have a wireless conversation by people many metres apart. Of course, some conditions are required, such as no noisy crowds, and all the conversant must be facing northward.

The echo wall is situated inside the Temple of Heaven complex, and demands it's own separate entrance fee, unless you buy a combined ticket when you arrive. It contains a couple of small temples, with some pleasant if unspectacular artifacts, but the main attraction is the echo wall itself, that does genuinely work. If you stand at one edge of the wall and speak into the wall, your voice can be heard by someone standing on the opposite side of the circle, and in effect you can have a conversation with them. It's the sort of thing you usually see in modern science museums, highlighting the advanced technological status of the ancient Chinese. Pretty unique and amazing, worth going to see if you're in the Temple of Heaven complex.

Heard my companions voice from the other side of the wall very clearly, truly exciting! Nice place to illustrate laws of nature for preteen and teenagers as well as the stories of the rest of the grounds around!

The Echo Wall surrounds the Imperial Vault of Heaven. Expect this place to be crowded with locals trying to take photos or screaming at the top of their voices. I rather move on quickly from here.

This is located at the south end of the Temple of Heaven Park. Interesting to see but not much to do. Recommend going early to avoid the crowds.

It's an echo wall right in front of the Temple entrance. They say you can have conversations across the wall that the sound is that good. It's so crowded and noisy i have no idea how anyone could ever find out

they say if you talk on one side of this wall your companion will hear the echo of your voice on the other side, I didn't try it myself as the place was overcrowded with visiting school children, you have to get a separate ticket to get in or use the get through ticket from the beginning

The echo wall is good fun. As the name suggests, the acoustics are quite remarkable. You can face the wall and talk to someone on the complete other side of the structure as your voice bounces off the wall.
It's a bit hard to do when there was the volume of visitors as there was on our visit so I'd advise an early morning call perhaps!
The Temple of Heaven Park is fsntastic with so many things to see. It is worth a half day visit at The very least. The echo wall is just one of many sights there, it's a very impressive structure and lovely to see.. and hear.
