    It's a 1km walk (15 min) from exit H of the Chaoyangmen metro station on lines 2 or 6. This includes a 15 minute music performance that runs at 10:00 and 15:00. The music has a long history as it is unique to this temple. It's a Buddhist temple, but does not function as such. No worshipers, no incense and no monks. There are English signs to accompany all the displays. A large video display runs a documentary about the temple; it's very informative. There remains the only example of Qing wood carving here. On Wednesdays, the first 200 visitors are free. Otherwise 20 RMB for adults.

    This temple is on the corner of Hu as Ming dynasty architecture. See Galaxy SOHO behind Hutong designed by architect Zaha Hadid. Nice space contest and the modern architecture of Ming dynasty Temple, Hu. In ji Temple is done playing classical music. Since 15 o'clock began playing habits and going to see whether performers look weak, no music, good atmosphere only something that was regrettable.
