Over the years, China's three ancient belief systems have all fallen in and out of fashion being both repressed and promoted by Emperors and leaders at various points in the country's history. Today they are, generally speaking, all encouraged and allowed to flourish, interconnecting and complementing each other, as opposed to being in competition or contradiction.

Visiting three of Beijing's beautiful and often tranquil temples will allow you to explore Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism in more detail, understanding the main philosophies behind them and how each inform a particular part of modern life. During your visit you are just as likely to see the younger generation, schoolchildren and students worshiping or studying as you are Beijing's older inhabitants.
