    When you walk around the Temple of Heaven, there are nine symbols everywhere. Nine symbolizes the supremacy of ninety-five. From the East Gate to the Far East, 28 passes per person in off-season can play the whole garden. The first time you come, you must buy a pass. You can rent an interpreter for 10 yuan, which is very good. 50 yuan deposit. This is my first travels, I hope you can help, from which door can enter, this need not consider too much, because the Temple of Heaven scenic spot is a straight line, as long as you go in, very good to find. This is the picture I took. I feel that if I go in and take pictures with a little refreshment and symmetry, I can take large pictures. After all, how can I take pictures of our extensive and profound culture? From north to south, the red wall of Biwa. The ancients skillfully applied the mathematics of spring, summer, autumn, winter, December, twelve o'clock, 24 solar terms, 28 stars and 36 days to the architecture. It was amazing that it was natural and unconstrained. Mei

    We must rent an interpreter. The rent is 10 yuan and the deposit is 50 yuan. Any door can be returned after the tour. Wherever you go, the stories it tells are very helpful to understand the scenic spots of the Temple of Heaven. Otherwise, it's just a trip here. The Temple of Heaven is very big. It is suggested to buy a ticket to enter the park from the South Gate, so that the route is more reasonable. The park with children can go out from the West Gate after playing. There is a natural museum, there are dinosaur fossils and imitation dinosaur parks, which are very good. The famous Hall of Prayer for New Year in Tiantan Park is the most spectacular and gives people a different feeling. Visiting Zhai Palace should be booked in advance, and the Shen-Le Department needs to buy additional tickets. The package only includes tickets for the park gate, the ridge, the echo wall and the prayer hall.

    Firstly, the Temple of Heaven is the place where the emperor sealed the heavens and places for Zen. Before he came, he learned a little about the culture of Zen; secondly, it is very convenient to take the subway. Line 5 has a station at the East Gate of the Temple of Heaven Park, right at the gate of the park, and the sign is very clear; thirdly, he can use his mobile phone to scan tickets so as not to queue up conveniently, but the 4G signal in the courtyard is not good, so it is better to cut off the two Fourth, you'd better buy a couplet ticket. The most magnificent building in the park is the Hall of Prayer for the Year, and you have to buy tickets to enter it. Fifth, you should bring your ID card with you. There is an animal slaughter site in the park. Sixth, if you eat, there is a red bridge market floor in the East gate, KFC, Pizza Hut, plus a variety of snacks (Sichuan Meishan, Zhejiang, Jiyejia) and many are cheap. Seventh, the Red Bridge market number is cheap. Call it the first market of pearls, and sell it to foreigners only. Let's just call it our own.

    This visit to the Temple of Heaven is only for the apricot blossom forest. Once last week, only a few flowers blossomed. Now here we are again, an ancient apricot tree is absolutely extraordinary, vigorous and powerful branches, bright and full flowers, sweet fragrance with the wind gusts, intoxicating ah. "apricot flower fragrance", this is the first experience in life, mild and refreshing, beautiful spring, full of sense of acquisition. It's not far from the north gate to the west; it's easy to find from the east gate to the west gate along the roots of the altar; it's easy to find from the south gate either through the prayer hall or along the roots of the altar. I realize that walking along the roots of the altar is short, convenient and easy to find.

    Metro Line 5 "Tiantan East Gate Station" Exit C, ticket combination only costs 35 yuan, including Tiantan Park, and prayer hall, imperial dome, ridge hill, etc. tickets of the Shenyue Department need to be bought separately. For the old Beijingers who are familiar with these historic buildings, they don't need to buy tickets to see these historic buildings every time they visit Tiantan Park. They just play chess on the park corridor and do some manual work to enjoy the fun of knitting. It's good to play Taiji near the lawn. It's only 10 yuan in front of the door, and the cost-effective ratio is very high. For those of us who come here to experience the history and culture of Emperor Du, it is also an interesting experience to visit the Temple of Heaven Park, to visit the buildings that worship the wisdom of the ancients, and to slow down in the garden, corridors, and to feel and taste the daily atmosphere of the modern old Beijing people.

    Touching the mottled old city wall, along the Danwei Bridge, from the Hall of Prayer for the Year to the echo wall, towards the mound. The echo wall is almost engraved by tourists, and the echo is also invalid. The heavenly core stone of Yuqiu is said to be a gem of Kunlun Mountain. It has its own mic. The emperor standing on it can shake the whole audience. After worshipping the wisdom of the ancients, it's interesting to sit among the trees and feel the life of the old people in modern Beijing.
