ITINERARY

Ba Da Chu Park (Eight Temple Park) is located in the south part of the Western Hills of Beijing bordering the area known as Fragrant Hills. It has been, since the Tang Dynasty an area of pilgrimage for Buddhists, Emperors, Officials, Scholars, Monks, Nuns and the common people. It is particularly popular during the hot summer months when the hills and foliage provide a serene and beautiful escape from the summer heat. It is known as Eight Temple Park because of eight Buddhist temples and nunneries, which are spread across Cuiwei, Pingpo and Lushi Hills. You begin with the most important site and where you will find most of the Monks and pilgrims in these active temples - the Buddha’s Tooth Relic Pagoda. Then you will stroll from one temple to another, enjoying the beautiful scenery and admiring pavilions, famous artifacts and rare ancient trees, and see the resident Monks and nuns going about their daily routines.
