Beijing Stone Carving Art Museum is located on the north bank of beautiful Changhe River. Taking the Zhenjue Temple, the royal monastery of the Ming and Qing Dynasties, as its site, it is the only thematic museum in Beijing that focuses on collection, conservation, display and study of stone cultural relics.
The Wutasi Pagoda of Zhenjue Temple in the museum was built in 1473 and was included as the first list of important national cultural relics protection units in 1961. At present, there are more than 2,600 cultural relics in the museum, mainly stone cultural relics from different periods and regions in Beijing, which are important materials for the study of Beijing history.
On the south of the Wutasi Pagoda are two ginkgo trees over 500 years old, with strong trunks and lush foliage. In autumn, golden ginkgo trees cast beautiful reflections with antique pagoda, which attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists every year. This is a good place to feel autumn, so you can’t miss it!
Tip: Free admission for the first 200 visitors every Wednesday (subject to the time of arrival at the ticket gate, not the order of reservation).
Address: No. 24, Wutasi Village, Haidian District, Beijing
