Tao Temple/Museum Worth Visiting in Beijing

This Temple/Museum is a bit unusual. Although fairly easy to reach by public transportation (subway) it seems to be off the beaten track. Very few visitors were there when we... read more

This simple museum is accessible by subway, and demonstrates interesting facts about Taoism. How their world was divided by various departments, we visited here to see the vast contrasts of Tao culture to others. The entrance fees were very reasonable (less than $2 USD). If you want to go off the beaten path this is a good place to visit,... More

It's a 700 meter walk (10min) from exit A of the Dongdaqiao metro station on line 6. The museum is located at the back of Dongyue temple. The museum is small and can be quickly view in less than an hour. It's organized well and with no English signs.

This Temple/Museum is a bit unusual. Although fairly easy to reach by public transportation (subway) it seems to be off the beaten track. Very few visitors were there when we visited. It is a very interesting introduction (and more) to Tao religion and culture. A very fascinating series of exhibitions, called departments. Interesting architecture and history.

This place is basically a compact tour of Taoism's world divided up by "departments" (including the department of abortion, wrongful death, and... More
