Beautiful temples spread out over acres of land. Lots of greenery and flowers. Make sure you bring your guide book if you want to know what you are looking at. Amazing history.

So much history, if you have a guide that can explain the history and events that take place and the meanings of all, you'll enjoy much more.

One can get tired of visiting temples in China. This was our first, however, and it was majestic. Everything in China is just a bit bigger than elsewhere - I liked this temple because it had a lovely view although it was pretty crowded.

This imposing structure provides wonderful panoramic views across Beijing. It is possible to see inside the Temple but not to go in.

The Temple of Heaven is another breath taking sight in Beijing. The architecture is amazing and the engraving and carving are fantastic. Visit the park beside the Temple and join in the fun with the locals.

It is ok to see one time, but I will not visit it the second time. It is nice to see but there is nothing special. And also the “echo gallery” is not allowed to use.

I think you got a lot of answers here. Prepare to walk a lot. Think we walked about 7 - 8 miles a day. Prepare! Get good shoes
