FaYuan Temple offers a piece of peace in fast-paced Beijing! For lay people without Buddhist certificate, admission is 5 Chinese dollars (like US$1). It is a medium sized yard with a few Buddhist halls. Each has different Buddha figures. I’m raised Christian but I still...More

I give one star hoping no more tourists come here to disturb the tranquility of the temple. Can't believe near the center of Beijing city, there is such a peaceful and calming temple where young monks are studying inside. Tourists, don't come.

It's a 1 km walk (15min) from exit D of the Caishikou metro station on line 4. This is active Buddhist temple and you'll see monks strolling the grounds and worshipers burning incense. Most exhibit areas are closed, thus I think there is reduced gate...More

Toured the Fayuan Temple, Ox Mosque and surrounding muslim neighborhood with tour guide Peter Zhao (iampeter518@foxmail.com). This was my second time using Peter. Using Peter allows for a fully customizable day at your own pace inexpensively. The Temple is very interesting to a Westerner because...More
