Definitely worth a visit while in Beijing. The world’s largest Buddha carved from a single tree trunk is truly spectacular.

It was so quiet even though I went on a weekend in the summer! And also super interesting seeing all the departments if the Daoist underworld (which all had English description!) My favourite temple I've visited in Beijing so far

It was very quiet when I went, with only a few other visitors at the time. Amazingly cheap at only 10 Yuan. It was really interesting to look at all of the different departments and stages of hell.

I wasn't disappointed if you have time try to go without a tour guide that way you will have more time to walk around and soak up the history or ask the guide to allow a bit of extra time for self-exploration, there is so much to take in.

A not-to-be-missed unique temple in Beijing describing and illustrating beliefs from Taoism. Various "departments" are illustrated in the cabins enshrined in the temple (see photo). We can walk to the Ritan park from here through the arch in front of the temple.

I'm amazed that this place only charges 10 Yuan by way of an entrance fee. What you get to see in return is an amazing step into the past. Don't forget to wander into the museum-halls along the northeastern side. A pity that the pamphlets are only mono-lingual though. Would have been great if it were a little more international.

The Dongyue Temple is a hidden gem in downtown Beijing! It may not be as well known among tourists as some of the other temples but it's well worth the visit and grounds are quite extensive for being in the city. The architecture and history were impressive, so colorful and the attention to detail in the carvings and paintings were breathtaking. Like some of the other reviews mentioned, some areas are in need of restoration but in all truth I think it added character.

I visited this temple as it is near to my hotel. Located in the city center, this temple is under visited by tourists. When i was there, less than 10 visitors wandered around. With 10yuan entrance fee, the temple has very quiet and serene ambiance with the main hall in the middle, a bridge connecting the main gate and the main hall. Surrounded by small rooms, each represents different department of Taoism. In each room, there are sculptured figures with description in the front wall.
This is the first time I've been to a Taoist temple, very different from buddhist temple so it's an interesting experience for me understanding more about Taoism and its principles
