"visit the TEMPLE OF HEAVEN......" Temple of Heaven Tip by Krystynn

Temple of Heaven, Beijing: 16 reviews and 17 photos


Favorite thing: visit the <b><u>TEMPLE OF HEAVEN</u></b>... and its enchanting <b><u>ECHO WALL</u></b> (see pic below).

Yes, located just north of the altar surrounding the entrance to the Imperial Vault of Heaven, the Echo Wall enables a whisper to travel clearly from one end of the wall to right the other end. Knowing us, we immediately tested this out and truly, it worked! My friend was standing right at the OTHER end of the wall (very, very, very far away from me....) and yet, I could hear her - loud and clear! You must check this out when you have the opportunity.
