  • Not the most amazing site to see (it's a flat circle), but still, the name seems to imply it's more than meets the eye

      Absolutely stunning, the Temple of Heaven is one of the major sites in Beijing and is not to be missed. Actually just renovated in preparation for the 2008 Olympics, it is a symbol of Ming architecture and Chinese beliefs melded into this one beautiful compound.

      When you first enter, the temple isn’t thrown in your


      face.

      In fact, most of the area is park, which itself is enjoyable.

      You can watch the old ladies practice synchronized dancing or tai chi, while the men seem to enjoy their sword fighting.

      But everyone there seems to be having a good time in some form or another.

      The actual temple, however,


      • is quite a site to be seen.

        Beautiful and intricate in all aspects, it possesses much Chinese symbolism such as the color blue for heaven.

        The Center Stone of Heaven is also located in the compound.

        Not the most amazing site to see (it’s a flat circle), but still, the name seems to imply

        it’s more than meets the eye.

        Good luck getting a picture while standing on it though, the pushing Chinese are fierce.

        Truly though, if you’re in Beijing, you cannot miss this, and you can’t have an excuse if you don’t.

        It’s probably one of the closer sites to the city center, and one of the most beautiful as well.
