Having a chance for a short term, in the capital city of China helped me go around and explore one of the very old civilization on Earth. Also to get to see those architectures, reminds me of how humans have evolved in this short time. Beijing is a perfect mix of history and modernization.
On day 1, I went on to visit 天坛 (Temple of Heaven) where it symbolizes god from the sky and he'll lead you to heaven. The park is so huge, as it also has other small temples and there's a mysterious seven stones which represents seven stars in the sky. Also i see people praying around trees, which is quite a rare sight in modern China.
On day 2, the very famous Olympic park called the bird's nest was visited. As the name goes, the structure also looks like the nest of a bird. And it's one of the man made wonder, that it's so huge inside; with which you can feel the intensity of olympic games.🏊🚴👩🦯
The last day of the trip is totally dedicated to the local cuisine, we had a try at the very famous 王府井大街 (Wangfujing street). To be honest, the northern food is more delicious, more quantity and less price which is a killer combo; that no cuisine can beat. 🦐🦞🍗🍖 Have a check at this street for sure !! #qingmingtravel #urbanexplorer #beijingtravel #templeofheaven
I usually try to avoid touristy spots, but the beautiful and intricate architecture and design of Temple of Heaven always brings me back.
The temple of Heaven was easily among my top 3 places to visit while in China. Full of history and colors. Plus it is surrounded by a beautiful park!

The Temple of Heaven is the place I must go. In ancient times, the Temple of Heaven in the heavenly place had the function of sacred prayers to regulate the rain. Although Hyundai does not continue this activity, its heartfelt devotion and blessings to the motherland remain unchanged.
How to play in the Temple of Heaven: It is recommended to arrive early in the morning. The park can enter at 6 o'clock but the most famous Hall of Prayer at 8 o'clock. The park is very large, and people who can see the exercise everywhere are quite popular. In addition to the prayer halls where the tour group is concentrated, Huang Yuyu and Qiuqiu, Tanjung Bridge, and the inner part of the inner gate of Xitianmen, there is a palace city surrounded by a city, named "Zhai Palace", which is the period during which the emperor sacrificed the "fasting" period. Living in the palace. It is also very worth seeing.
