"This it outside of Tiantan,..." Temple of Heaven Tip by bokononist

Temple of Heaven, Beijing: 16 reviews and 17 photos


Favorite thing: This it outside of Tiantan, the temple of heaven. If you watch people practice their caligraphy, just as in Tai Chi, you get a total feel for the culture. These men are paiting characters with water on stones because paper is pretty scarce there.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
