Travel Photos - Temple of Heaven, Beijing, China

If you are going to Beijing, China you should take the time to visit the Temple of Heaven. You will need 3-4 hours if you want to take your time to take pictures. My son and I were there in November 2012. It was a cold, rainy day. Outside, before entering The Temple of Heaven, we bought umbrellas from a lady on the sidewalk. It was cheaper to buy from her, because in the little boutique inside it was more expensive. We used our umbrellas the whole time we were in Beijing. It was well worth my $3. If you are going to Beijing when it is tourists season, you should go early in the morning to avoid the crowd. We were lucky, because in November we did not see many tourists visiting Beijing. It made our life easier when we visited the attractions in town. To get there you can easily walk from your hotel to the Temple, take a cab or the subway.

The Temple of Heaven was built in 1420 and the total ares is 270 acres. Bring good walking shoes for your trip to China. This is the largest building for religious worship in China. Locals meet up to exercise, play instruments, sing, play cards. You feel a sense of community. It is a World Heritage Site. We found this place to be so peaceful.
