What makes this park stand out over all the other parks in Beijing is that it offers a vantage point to look over the Forbidden City. The temple on top of the hill is directly north of the main halls of the Forbidden City so the best light for photos is early in the morning when (at this time of year) the sun is north of east or near sunset. Early morning also offers good light for the White Dagoba of Beihei Park. It was hazy when we went so there were a lot of disappointed photographers with fancy cameras and tripods at the temple but one could imagine that, on a clear day (which is probably a rare event during a Beijing summer), the view would be spectacular.
