Have you ever heard temples in a park? Well, you won’t get to hear such occurrences every time. Beijinig’s Eight Great Sites Park is a park that houses eight Buddhist temples. Those were used to be temples in fact, which are now preserved as great sites: Temple of Eternal Peace (Chang’ansi), the Temple of Divine Light (Lingguangsi), Three-hill Nunnery (Sanshan’an), the Temple of Great Mercy (Dabeisi), Dragon Spring Nunnery (Longquan’an), the Temple of Fragrant World (Xiangjiesi), The Cave of Precious Pearl (Baozhudong) and Zhengguo Temple
These sacred temples were situated all over Cuiwei, Pingpo and Lushi hills. Thais renovated this place in the 1980 and since then it has been attracting tourists. It is easy to reach this place from Somerset ZhongGuanCun Beijing, a Serviced Apartment in Beijing. The park is commonly known as Badachu, the Chinese derivative for ‘eight great sites’.
This place has no special season. Everyday is a season for this place with its mild climate; you feel cool in summer and warm in winter. Take your own time to explore the sacredness of each temple. Each temple contributes to the elegant landscape and natural beauty.
You are certainly breathing fresh air. It will be a welcome change for someone who is sick of the city’s polluted air. You will be passing along rare trees, some of which are actually more than six centuries. These trees are amazing with their strong branches and proper shape.
From September to October you can see leaves slowly turning to red. It is the perfect time for a mountain hike. If you fancy a mountain climb, but a little scary of the foot journey, you can still opt for a cable car to reach the mountain top.
This is probably one place you must try to visit at least once in life, especially if you are a globetrotter. You can experience its genuine nature for yourself. If you are lucky to make it here, don’t ever be bothered about time. It takes a lot of time to explore the whole park anyway.
