Among the earliest Buddhist shrines in China, Pool and Mulberry Tree Temple (Tanzhe Si) features halls, courtyards, and altars, arranged along the central axis and built during Ming and Qing dynasties. A large bronze pot in front of the main hall was used by monks for preparation of food. In the courtyard behind the hall grows a pair of gingko trees--the emperor tree and the empress tree. Legend has it that the emperor tree grew a new branch each time a new Qing ruler came to the throne. A tall pavilion with a brick roof carved with images of dragons and phoenixes, as well as a 1.46 m (4.79 ft) long green stone fish carved from a huge meteorite deserve your attention. Using our custom trip planner, Beijing attractions like Pool and Mulberry Tree Temple (Tanzhe Si) can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • public transport is not very convenient, the locals do not tell, because want to you rode their machines! near the Pingoûan′ Metro station, a dozen touts, who are ready to take you on to the edge of the world, but be careful and bargain prices they offer unrealistic, we offered 300 yuan eventually we taxi through the application and came a little more than 100! the place is beautiful, peaceful, ordinary monastery

  • This is one of the oldest monasteries, reachable from Beijing relatively quickly, if you go by car. Serenity and peacefulness, silence ... Here it seems that got in the past, and perhaps this is one of the attractions, as well as possible to help you plunge into the atmosphere of China.

  • Woodland area. Few tourists. There is a little slope. The temple,... one of the many that you visit. Landscape and views.
