I loved the colour of the temple, and the surrounding park is lovely for a walk. A must see if you go to Beijing.

The structures are very interesting and the Temple itself is exciting to see but I did not think to myself that this was an amazing place. It was nice to see but even though it’s on every single itinerary when visiting Beijing, I could take...More

This temple is located in a park. We got to see all the local people doing their morning exercises. The park has an interesting side note. There are signs on some of the trees showing their age. Some are 200 hundred years old. The temple...More

Quite a small area and ok in the torrential rain. Very pretty but not time consuming. It’s a nice quick sightseeing trip.

We enjoyed walking around the grounds which were pretty. Tie this in with a visit to the Imperial Palace since this shouldn’t take more than an hour to walk around.

This is a place that you walk through as fast as you can and then say, "Been there, done that" and move on. There is a lot of history to see in Beijing but nothing really interesting outside of the Great Wall.

My wife & I are DYI travellers. There really is no need to pay for a guided tour of the Temple of Heaven and the Tiantan Park. You just need give yourself enough time to see the majority of the park and its highlights. We... More

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