Built in 1420 with a total area of 270 acres, this is the largest building for religious worship in China, which was originally used by the Ming and Qing emperors to pay homage to Heaven and to pray for a year of rich harvest.
This is a building that is so striking when you see it you do not feel ashamed to mention it in the same sentence as the Taj Mahal. No. It is not that magnificent but it makes an incredible impression on you in that vein....More
This is a must visit during your holiday in the capital. The main round temple is beautiful, the other temples are all very important historically and is a very big area to visit, can spend the whole day inside and for sure don’t get bored!...More
Typical visit, not too big, but crowded, worth getting the all inclusive ticket (34rmb) that lets you in all the areas, some buildings requires online prebooking(free) before as there will be a queue, haven't figured out how that works.
I have a hard time understanding the enthusiasm for this one. It is quite different of the rest of the historic monuments and buildings but for some unknown reason it failed to spark my interest, maybe because we did it right after the forbidden city...More
Built in the Ming dynasty and used through the Qing dynasty. A replica of the temple sits in WDW’s Epcot. The actual temple and surrounding rock pavement could use some TLC.

My wife & I are DYI travellers. There really is no need to pay for a guided tour of the Temple of Heaven and the Tiantan Park. You just need give yourself enough time to see the majority of the park and its highlights. We spent a good 4hrs, an entire morning exploring this wonderful place. Be prepared to do a lot of walking when visiting any/all of Beijing's historical attractions. Beijing is huge and you cannot expect to see it all in only a day or 2. There are plenty of online guides to assist you in planning a visit to this city. We use Visit a City to help us plan our days in most cities we visit. Cheers...
