This is a must see, but we were there an hour max. We read that this was a half day ordeal, that's false. There's the main temple and some other places to see.

We were simply awed by the Temple of Heaven. The place is huge. The grounds are beautiful. You can almost feel the history. What was the most interesting for me was the park surrounding the temple - it's full of fantastic energy

most of the Beijing temples are empty - and not much to see there, this one not any different, but still good to visit.

The Temple itself wasn't as impressive, but the entire park was. Make sure to visit it entirelyand do stop before the century old trees

I have seen pictures of this but walking up close to it was a great experience, we did go when it was crowded but it's worth the trip.

It's like all the other attractions. Boring, over rated and you can't read anything because it's all in chinese

Get there by 6am, and you will see people exercising already. Main park opens earlier than the temple sites.
