The Temple of Heaven
In a city of 22 million people a site of interest that promises even a little tranquility rises even higher on the “must do” list. And that’s where the Temple of Heaven comes in.
Upon entering the temple complex, which is said to be the biggest on China, it’s easy to feel like you’ve gotten away from the hustle and bustle of the city. But I don’t mean it was empty by any means, it’s China, there’s a crowd of some size everywhere!
The temple of Heaven sits in the huge park of the complex where people, mostly retired folks I’d guess, come gather and sing, play board games, dance or ask to throw rings around the necks of passersby.
