During my 2011 trip to Beijing, I was staying near the Temple of Heaven. On 8/10/11, I had a morning walk to the Temple of Heaven Park. Temple of Heaven is one of the must-see attractions in Beijing, but most tourists are most likely to miss the Park and Fasting Palace on the west side of Temple of Heaven. The park is so huge with so many trees, gates, walls, benches, pavilions, buildings, etc. The locals love to come here to hang out with their friends doing sport like Tai Chi, dancing, Ping Pong Tennis, and etc. You can either hide yourself inside the tree forests surrounded by trees or enjoy public performances or singing in the crowd at Temple of Heaven Park. I continued to wonder around, and managed to see the following favorite sites:

1) Fasting Palace - In my review.
2) Divine Music Administration - In my review.
3) Double-Ring-shaped Longevity Pavilion - In my review.
4) Fan-Shaped Pavilion - In my review.
5) Column Foundation of the Sacrificial Hall -In my review.

Admission to the Park without any attractions: Y15
Admission to Fasting Palace + Divine Music Administration: Y10

In Chinese: 天坛公园 (Tian Tan Gong Yuan)

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
