The Dongyue Temple is a hidden gem in downtown Beijing! It may not be as well known among tourists as some of the other temples but it's well worth the visit and grounds are quite extensive for being in the city. The architecture and history...More

Really original Taoist temple in downtown Beijing. It seems quite small from outside but after getting in you will find enormous 2 courtyards with hips of small room/departments for every god and so much more!

There were only a handful of other people at the temple when we visited. It's one of the few places in Beijing where you can be almost alone. The departments in the courtyards are all very interesting, and also slightly disturbing, including the department of...More
