Temple of Heaven hotels
Temple of Heaven
The Temple of Heaven (or, “Altar of Heaven”) was built in the Ming Dynasty, and was the site showered with worship from the likes of emperors for a healthy annual harvest for centuries. Located in southern Beijing, this architectural marvel has a whole park built around it to allow visitors to take their time wandering the temple grounds, an area of over two square metres. The temple itself is quite a site, and the grounds are kept in pristine conditions, making this a memorable experience for the whole family. You might choose from an automatic guide in almost any language or reserve a live guide in Chinese or English.
- Choose from the thematic exhibitions where you can hear the sacrificial music and watch a lavish traditional ceremony.
- Wander the grounds and enjoy the beauty of the flower gardens of the Temple of Heaven.
- Tour the educational exhibits in the Hall of Divine Music which are display everything from traditional dress to the beautiful instruments used in the ceremonies.
Getting to the Temple of Heaven is most efficient by either subway or bus. The subway is Line 5 to Tiantandongmen Station. This will get you to the East Gate. Dozens of bus lines will get you to the Temple of Heaven, so check the bus schedule for the particular stops and so on. If you want the automatic tour guide, any gate has the necessary equipment, but the live guide will only be at the East Gate. A walking tour of this amazing place in the bustling metropolis of Beijing is a good idea, but confining your tour to a selected amount of places is recommended to keep your day concise.
