Jingshan Park, Beijing: 37 reviews and 88 photos

 
 

Located across the street of the north exit of the Forbidden City, Jinshan Park has a quiet cypress garden and an artificial hill with a Buddhist temple at the top overlooking the Forbidden City.

If you have a choice, pick a clear day and you can see the wonderful panaromic view of all directions of Beijing - Forbidden City and National Theatre of Performing Art in the south, the Drum and Bell Tower in the north, the CCTV building in the new Central Business District in the East and the Bei Hai Park in the west.

You can climb up the steps to the top of the hill from all 4 directions. At the top, it is crowded with many tourists and photographers. Worth the climb.
