Ditan Park, Beijing

(3.6/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange your visit to Ditan Park and discover more family-friendly attractions in Beijing using our Beijing tourist route planner.

  • Boring, compared to the Temple of heaven. Good only the lack of crowds, that Beijing is quite nice. Otherwise nothing interesting, especially in the spring. Not worth wasting time if you're in Beijing briefly!

  • Great Park, in the heart of an ancient temple complex. Popular among local residents. A good place to take a stroll on a bright afternoon and feel the breath of time. There is a small exhibition of Antiquities in an enclosed Pavilion (small fee required). To visit the Park, if you came to Lama Temple or Temple of Confucius. All in a 10-minute walk from each other.

  • 位于北京市东城区的一个大公园,地坛公园每年春节都举办庙会,游客如织,园内有许多参天古树,是过去举行皇家祭典的地方,具有北京特色,秋天的银杏树特别壮观,早晨有许多锻炼的老人,公园出来以后附近的京兆尹餐厅令人难忘!听说民国时期的京兆尹衙门,位于京兆尹餐厅附近,这还真是巧合啊!  more »
