Explore the Temple of Heaven complex on foot while learning its ritual and historical significance.

About this Journey

On this tour, we will explore the Temple of Heaven complex and discuss its ritual and historical significance. The Temple of Heaven features some of the most iconic architecture in Beijing and it is also one of the city’s largest public parks and a gathering place for Beijingers of all ages. Nowhere else does the city’s past and present exist so prominently side by side. 

This walk will illuminate the connections between past and present and how ancient forms of political legitimacy linger into the 21st century. 

Along the way, we will have a chance to witness the vibrant culture of the park. You might see dancers, musicians, martial artists, even sometimes parents matchmaking their (often unsuspecting) grown children!
