The Temple of the Earth was the place where the emperor perform sacrificial rituals during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It corresponds to the Temple of Heaven. The buildings in the altar are all square in shape. The Temple has many ancient buildings from the Ming and Qing Dynasties, as well as places for offering sacrifices and items on exhibit. You can come here to learn more about the processes of the worship. Every autumn, many people also come here to admire the yellow leaves of the ginkgo, which is very suitable for photography.

Ditan park is quite small. However it only costs about 2 rmb to get in. To get into the imperial ritual room it costs another 5 rmb.
It's more lively during the Chinese New years and there are more activities during then.
When it's not the Chinese new year you will see people jogging, singing, dancing.
This park is definitely worth checking out during the Spring Festival Temple Fair season! Easy walk from the crowds at Lama Temple Yonghegong.
Nice ancient park, where local people gathering to do some excercise. If you want a bit relax after visit Beijing crowder tourist attractions, this is place for you.
Every year, the Temple of the Earth holds a temple fair to celebrate the New Year. There is a red, festive atmosphere, and here it will bloom with involuntary laughs. Here you can also see childhood windmills, golden hoops, sugar people, as well as modern new playthings. After visiting the temple fair here, you can go to the altar to pay homage and pray for good luck in the coming year.
