This phantastic temple complex just East of the centre of Beijing and easy to get to by metro is one of the most intriguing places in the capital - not only but especially in summer; when the shaded yards offer some respite from the heat...More

There were only a handful of other people at the temple when we visited. It's one of the few places in Beijing where you can be almost alone. The departments in the courtyards are all very interesting, and also slightly disturbing, including the department of...More

It's a 700 meter walk (10min) from exit A of the Dongdaqiao metro station on line 6. Few tourists visit this temple so it's easily toured. It's a Daoist temple and worshipers are seen making offerings. There's a bonus to visiting since the Beijing Folklore...More

This Daoist Temple dates back to the 14th Century and is quite expansive. Tucked away in the Chaoyang district, and easily reached by subway (with a bit of a walk), the temple site is a quiet escape from the Beijing action and contains some quite...More

if you are staying in the area then drop by - or if you are on holiday for longer then visit. Quiet place among the noise of inner city Beijing showing the historical setting for taoism.
