Lanterns at the Dafei Temple in Badachu

Shijingshan District (石景山区; Shíjǐngshānqū) is in the western part of Beijing.

Contents

Get in

Subway Line 1 (red) extends west into Shijingshan. Bus and taxi journeys from central Beijing will be long.

See

  • Badachu (八大处; Bādàchǔ; lit. The Eight Great Sites), (Take Bus 311 N from Pingguoyuan Stn to Badachu Middle School (八大处中学; Bādàchǔ Zhōngxué) and then walk NW 1 km). Badachu is comprised of eight Buddhist temples and monasteries at the foot of the Western Hills. Restored in the 1980s, the whole area is now a park and popular tourist destination for Beijingers wishing to escape city life.
  • Hope Park (希望公园; Xīwàng Gōngyuán). A small but attractive park south-east of Badachu.
A fresco in Fahai Temple
  • Fahai Temple (法海寺; Fàhǎi Sì), (3.5 km NW from Pingguoyuan Stn. Buses 311, 336, 527, 621 all head from around Pingguoyuan to the temple). This fifteenth century temple has some of the best-preserved and extensive Ming frescoes to be found. The regular admission is ¥20, but you can't see the real frescoes, only replicas. To see the real frescoes, you have to pay ¥100 - the 'no camera' policy is so strict they don't even have lights in the real fresco room, you have to use flashlights. The real frescoes are much larger than the replicas (and a lot dustier!). Included with the 100 kuai ticket is a guide who talks about the frescoes (no English).
  • Tianyi's Tomb (田义墓; Tiányì Mù), 80 Moshikou Dajie (模式口大街80号) (At the foot of Cuiwei Mountain and to the S of Fahai Temple). This is the most extensive and well-preserved Ming dynasty tomb of an eunuch. There is a Eunuch Culture Museum (¥8 entrance fee) at the same site.
  • Cheng'en Temple (承恩寺; Chéng'ēn Sì), East Moshikou Dajie (模式口大街东部) (S of the Fahai Temple). This is another temple with a history of at least five hundred years.
  • China Quaternary Glacier Museum (中国第四纪冰川陈列馆; Zhōngguó Dìsìjì Bīngchuān Chénlièguǎn), Moshikou Dajie (模式口大街) (Just S of Fahai). This museum was founded in 1992 and offers an introduction to geology, geography, and glaciers.
  • Beijing International Sculpture Park (北京国际雕塑公园 Běijīng Guójì Diāosù Gōngyuán), (Line 1 to Yuqianlu), +86 10 68650422. Opened in 2002, this park places sculpture from around the world in an attractive, green setting. ¥5.
  • Babaoshan Revolutionary Cemetery (八宝山革命公墓; Bābǎoshān Gémìng Gōngmù), (Head N from the Babaoshan Stn). Originally a temple, this was made into the chief cemetery for Communist Party figures. Buried here are artist Xu Feihong, writer Lao She, and many of the most important CCP leaders.
  • Cishan Temple (天台山慈善寺; Tiāntái Shān Císhàn Sì), (On Tiantai Mountain, from Pingguoyuan, a taxi ride is ¥30). This is also known as Tiantai Temple. Contrary to internet rumor, the temple is open year-round, not on just March 16-18.
