Whilst interesting part of Chinese history nothing particulary stood out during our visit. This view is tempered by the long distances required to be covered by foot

Once forbidden to ordinary citizens, today it is a beautiful public park. Can see people enjoying cards and Chinese chess. The temple itself is a beautiful piece of architecture. You can also explore the history of ancient Chinese worship in display building.

Long walk towards the temple itself. Didn't realize how big the temple is until you reach the top. Lots of senior people along the hallways going to the temple - playing cards, checkers, etc. Nice place to visit during weekends with family.

Even though we had rapidly deteriorating weather on our day visiting here and the Summer Palace, I'm glad we persevered. Even in our whirlwind whip around in rain and snow it was a fascinating place and one you really shouldn't miss. We loved it.

Interesting historical place. The surrounding park is very relaxing and beautiful. Not much to do but has some decent views and interesting history. If you’re in the park you should stop by for a few minutes

Get there by 6am, and you will see people exercising already. Main park opens earlier than the temple sites.
