Ditan Park, Beijing

3.7
#10 of 113 in Museums in Beijing
Home to one of the last five remaining royal altars of the Ming and Qing Dynasties in Beijing, Ditan Park houses a handful of historical sites nestled in leafy surrounds. Constructed in 1530 as the second-largest imperial temple of the city, the complex extends 42.7 hectares (105.5 acres). A relaxed stroll along shady paths leads you to the inner temple, where the Fangze altar once served as the site of royal sacrifice ceremonies. Today, the park includes a children's play area, food kiosks, and a local spot for tai chi. Be sure to grab a brush and try your hand at water calligraphy.
