We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Ancient Bell Museum in Great Bell Temple
Great Bell Temple, also named Temple of Awakening or Juesheng Si, was built in the northwestern suburbs of Beijing in the 11th year of the reign of Emperor Yongzheng of the Qing Dynasty (1733).

The Ancient Bell Museum is located in the Great Bell Temple. Built in 1733, this temple was originally named the Temple of Awakening the Living and occupied an area of 30,000 square meters. It was an important place where emperors used to conduct elaborate ceremonies with bells to pray for rain during periods of drought. It houses the country's largest bell, named the Yongle Bell after Ming Emperor Yongle, hence it is also known as the Great Bell Temple.
