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. 

NOTE:  1.Take passport with you
             2. Bring cash to buy ticket

Roy was simply one of the best guides I’ve ever met in my life. Not only he had so much knowledge about Chinese history, he was such a nice, fun person. He answered all the questions that I had and made sure to text me after the tour with restaurants recommendations. This is a must do tour for everyone visiting Beijing!

From the meeting point Roy provided a tour that was informative and without issues. He escorted us through process of purchasing tickets to enter the temple complex and then gave the group background on the buildings and the history their purpose. He tailored the timing to the group's interest and was always willing to offer up more information. Thank you for a wonderful morning!
