Amazingly beautiful! There is so much to see that you really need a few hours to walk through the whole park. We arranged to take Tai Chi classes here and really enjoyed our day. It's gorgeous and peaceful.

Interesting area in this busy capital city. The guide explained a lot of the symbolism and it is obviously a real shame that so much of the original opulence vases decor and so forth has been destroyed. Essential viewing if visited Beijing

Lovely place to see. Very interesting. You need a good English speaking guide. Loads of people (standard for China). Take toilet paper! Great history and a must see

It is really beautiful, but one can not enter the temple. You can however sneak a peak inside behind the barricades.

there were so many people here we spent most of our time trying to get away from others. The grounds are beautiful but be prepared to share your visit with thousands of others

I have seen many Chinese and even tourists running around on their EL mopeds and Scooters. But I don't recall seen any rentals around Temple of Heaven

Tiantandongmen on Line 5. The gate is only about 100m from the exit from the subway. Open this helps.
