The Lively Playground at Temple of Heaven

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

The Temple of Heaven to the local Beijing people is more than just a religious place or a place for viewing the ancient Chinese architecture.  It is also a huge park complex that comprises an area of hundreds-year-old cypress trees, well-maintained forests and gardens of various sizes.

The Temple of Heaven is a perfect place for locals, especially the retirees to come here for morning exercises, singing and dancing, and other cultural activities. Inside the east gate there is a lively playground equipped with rows of sports facilities.

Now the playground has become  a lively morning hangout for the local Beijing people to do morning exercises, dancing and other activities, an interesting spot for foreigners to explore the routine life in Beijing.

Follow me to have a virtual tour of the lively morning in Temple of Heaven.
