Tour description

I will wait for you at Metro line5 Tiantandongmen station(East Gate of Temple of Heaven) Exit A2.

Please bring Chinese yuan cash and passport with you to buy tickets.

The Temple of Heaven Park, Tiantan in Chinese, is located in the Dongcheng District, Beijing. It is the largest and most representative existing masterpiece among China's ancient sacrificial buildings. 

Originally, the Temple of Heaven was the place where emperors of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) and Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911) held the Heaven Worship Ceremony. First built in 1420, the 18th year of the reign of Emperor Yongle of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), the Temple of Heaven was enlarged and rebuilt during the reigns of the Ming emperor Jiajing and the Qing emperor Qianlong. 

In 1988, it was opened to the public as a park, showing ancient philosophy, history and religion. Its grand architectural style and profound cultural connotation give an insight into the practices of the ancient Eastern civilization.

Roy was an outstanding guide for us. We really had no idea what to expect with this tour but he was awesome. Meetup and getting entry tickets went smoothly. He came prepared with different historical maps of Beijing and gave us a bit of a preamble about the history of Beijing, which was great. He took us to all the major stops in the Temple of Heaven area and I swear he knew the answer to even the most random questions. We really cannot recommend Roy enough!

He made the 2 plus hours easy to pass and was very interactive in discussion of any topics that we had questions on. Would definitely recommend this tour if you are to visit temple of heaven!
