      During my last visit to Beijing, I had an opportunity to go southward to the Temple of Heaven. By the time I visited this place, I went there by taxi. These days, visitors can go to the Temple of Heaven by subway and alight at Tian-tan-dong-men. Just a few steps from there you will see the east gate through which you can enter this place of interest.

      It is actually a huge garden with a couple

      • a calm Chinese traditional music.

        To the south of the garden there is a round open-air field. In the centre of it, there is a small round stone about 60 cm in diameter. It is believed that this stone is located at the middle of the world, from which the name of the country (China or “Zhongguo” in Chinese means the “middle country”) came. Should you need to take a picture while standing on the stone,

        you have to walk fairly fast towards it right after someone finished and left it, as there are a lot of people having the same purpose as you do, and there is no queue for this.

        Try not to use public toilets in the area as they are not well maintained and very smelly. Although it is huge, this place has only several spots to see. Visitors therefore need only to spend less than two hours to explore.
