The Temple of Heaven is part of the Ming and Qing Dynasty and to visit it it good idea to have a tour guide. We took a tour with China Travel Guide and Linda was our guide. We could not ask for a better guide.

Stunning circular temple with good views, the only downside is the throngs of people making it quite hard to get up to the barrier in order to see the glorious insides of the temple. There are also a few buildings turned over to exhibition halls,...More

It is a beautiful place. You should visit when in Beijing. We took our kids and they also took many photos as they thought it was gorgeous.

Glorious sunny day showed the colours at their best. Very busy but added to the atmosphere. The surrounding parks are also well worth a visit to see the Chinese doing their exercises, playing games and generally having a good time.

Hi Martha, I went with a coach bus tour. They were pretty good, cheap and on-time. We didn't have to queue at all when entering to any place.
