Situated 17 kilometres from Beijing city centre, south of the Fragrant Hills is Badachu, a famous attraction on Beijing’s outskirts. The Park covers a total area of 332 hectares and the height of the highest hill is 464 meters. It is among the first national key units of cultural relics for preservation.
Beijing Badachu Park is a Buddhist temple park with a long history and abundant historical relics. For hundreds of years the landscape has been famous for "Three Hills, Eight Temples, and Twelve Scenes". The Park got its name from the eight well preserved ancient temples.
The three hills, Cuiwei, Pingpo and Lushi are shaped like a huge chair with lush green trees.
