  • Perched on a low hill the observatory builds equipment for and operates some of the world's foremost telescopes.  more »
  • If you love space and in the area then it's all worthwhile coming here. It's not massive. They could do it a little better though and have an opportunity to turn it into a tourist attraction. A short walk away is jindaiji gardens and temple and I would recommend doing all three in the one day. Google maps will help you.
  • One of the best observatories you will ever see. Lovely place.
