Places to Visit in Beijing: Tanzhe Temple Part III

A lot of the temples in Beijing, including those at the Forbidden City, are all a lot of alike. Of course, they really valued certain arrangements of buildings and there was numerical significances to different aspects of the way buildings were designed and there was symbolism that communicated things about heaven and earth and harvests and whatnot. But if you’re not a Chinese history and symbolism buff, then, in terms of temples, everything starts to really blend together after a few days of hitting every temple in town. Tanzhe Temple stood out to us though. It was different than the others, maybe mostly because it was outside of the city. We’re entirely not sure, but maybe it was because it wasn’t filled with nearly as many wide-open spaces surrounded by buildings that all look the same.
