The place is worth visiting to understand the reason behind its existence. It embodies man's reliance on God for abundance of harvest to feed the many. This is where the emperor prays for bountiful harvest. And the tour guide emphasized that only the queen can...More

It's a sacred place with 3 most extraordinary "sound design": the Echo Wall, the 3 Sound Stone and the Round Stone. Have fun finding it and playing with it!

We loved this place with marble steps to the temple itself. This place is quintessential China. We chose to do an extension in Beijing on our Viking Jewels of Imperial China and am so glad we did. It was a must to see.

One of the must visit sites in Beijing - along with the Forbidden City and Summer Palace. Beautiful park, expansive and amazing architecture. A good way to spend the afternoon and getting to experience a world heritage UNESCO site.

We went here out of season and it meant we got great views of inside the temple. Our guide described the pillars etc. Worth a visit.

This was included on our tour and we enjoyed seeing it but if you're tight on time and trying to squeeze things in -- give this a miss. It only took us about a half hour to walk around and snap a few pics. We...More

The Temple of Heaven complex is full of circles, with only some of the walls being square. Possibly that is why it is also referred to as the Circle of Heaven. The steps are multiples of nine, which means nine days. The old cypress tree...More
