It's a lovely temple and it's much more peaceful and authentic than some of the others I've been to in Beijing. It's not easy to get to, but if you have time then I'd recommend.

TIP: don't buy incense outside the temple with the intention of bringing it in! Outside incense is not allowed, which is fine, since the temple provides incense and is included in your ticket fee. Conditions weren't ideal the day I went - a bit rainy...More

It was about 2 hours car ride from the city to there. You also have to go up a hill slope that curves like a snake. I could imagine a lot of bikers who want to get out on the weekend would definitely come here....More
