BEIJING: Temple of Heaven
October 2005

On Tuesday we set out for the Temple of Heaven.  It was a disappointment because, despite its celestial name, it was just another series of courtyards, gates, and pagodas.  We had also made the mistake of buying only the “entrance” ticket and not the “through” ticket.  Without the “through” ticket, we could not enter into any of the structures, but could only peer through the gates.  The Temple of Heaven did have one redeeming quality: it was surrounded by a forest of large and beautiful trees.
