Beijing Ancient Observatory (古观象台) , 2 Dong Biaobei Hutong Wed 11 Dec 2019

This event has now passed.

At first glance, Beijing’s bustling Central Business District seems like an odd place to search for Old Peking, but it’s there if you know where to look. An observatory built for looking to the heavens. An altar to the sun. A temple depicting the different fates which await sinners in the afterlife. This walk will explore the old among the new. Travel through modern Beijing and uncover the past.
