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

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.

We took in the Temple in the afternoon. Not certain what to expect or what we were about to see. When we arrived, the information boards were almost exclusively in Chinese. We were able to ascertain that we wanted the more expensive ticket option (this...More

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... More
