I came here with friends as part of our tour. Was truly a place that you must see. Also to see all the locals playing cards, checkers, crocheting, etc all around on the way. Be sure and come early to avoid crowds.

Meh! It was pretty and lots of walking. But after a while, all temples look alike. They used to do lots of sacrificial cooking there, so they built kitchens and long corridors for waiting queues. Definitely insightful to their ways of worship in past. It was nice to see. Probably not on my must see list. But if you're trying... More

The Temple of Heaven is not only a temple but a park where people are seen exercising and playing cards sitting on the banisters leading to the temple. The historical temple and the surrounding buildings are worth seeing.

One entry price for just the park, extra if you want to go into the Temple. We just walked around the park and it was lovely. Nice to go in the morning and watch the people doing Tai Chi and other exercises in groups

Beautiful park and views. The temple is not accessible inside, but you can see from the outside. Huge park, short queues. Price is 15rmb. I would recommend it, it's a must see in Beijing

Classic must see attraction. Spend time wondering in the park watching the couples dancing, listen to the musicians, tai chi and then you have the beautiful complex to explore. This turned into about 4 hours to see the highlights with the wife and I and our two 7 and 3 year old children.

Love the temple of heaven. The temple was built without nails. The echo wall is also fascinating to young and old. I particularly enjoyed watching local people dance, sing, and exercise in the park in early morning. What a nice picture for a harmonized society!

It is a very good place to visit and experience. The jade stones/tables are very good and the museum is worth visiting.

Take this as complaint - and a warning not to make the same mistake as we made: It's not only ridiculous to close this temple at 5:30 pm when sun is still shining and so on - it's even more ridiculous to stop selling tickets for the temple ("through ticket") at 4 pm already. No chance to convince the staff... More
