I give one star hoping no more tourists come here to disturb the tranquility of the temple. Can't believe near the center of Beijing city, there is such a peaceful and calming temple where young monks are studying inside. Tourists, don't come.

Toured the Fayuan Temple, Ox Mosque and surrounding muslim neighborhood with tour guide Peter Zhao (iampeter518@foxmail.com). This was my second time using Peter. Using Peter allows for a fully customizable day at your own pace inexpensively. The Temple is very interesting to a Westerner because...More

So as soon as I got to the gate there were 2 people begging from the outside. No idea if they were fake or real beggars. Walking inside you see again a drum and bell tower. A reoccurring theme in all of these places. Walking...More
