Beijing Art Museum and Wanshou Temple

Recommended
En route to their summer residence, the Ming emperors stopped at the 16C Temple of Longevity. Two towers, the Drum and Clock towers, provide an early glimpse of architecture which is similar to that of the Forbidden City and which could be taken for a miniature version of the latter. An art museum inside the temple contains remarkable collections of porcelain crockery and jade. At the end of your visit, enjoy a stroll through the strange rock garden facing the 17C Temple of the Eternal Buddha.
