Not really promoted on tourist sites, this is well worth hunting down. The temple is behind an unassuming gate in an unassuming hutong. It contains a unique octagonal library for storing religious texts, and a wonderful unrestored ceiling. Most days there are performances of traditional...More

If you have a hankering to visit temples while in Beijing, this is worth putting on your list. It's smallish and quiet. But there's the charm of it. A beautiful tree shaded set of courtyards with not a tourist in sight will greet you on...More

I enjoyed this temple for many reasons one was that few people go here. It is not right next to other sites. It is about a mile walk from the ancient observatory. Inside the temple there are large figures that beautifully painted.
