Ditan Park, Beijing

3.7
#12 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. Make your Beijing itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • Ditan Park is the place of the emperor sacrifice, from the West Gate into the garden is a ginkgo biloba woods, I think this piece of wood is better than rich over the fishing station Ginkgo Avenue. Ditan Simon's corridor on both sides are ginkgo trees, autumn visitors to see the excitement is also the photographer's paradise. Into the west after the park north and south toward two Ginkgo Avenue, the two road is different from Simon outside and appear quiet, solemn, less smart more atmosphere and expensive gas.
