Not just another temple, this temple had much information in English to help you understand the life and history of Confucius. There were a few stations with information on diving deeper into calligraphy and the importance to experiencing he six Arts taught by Confucius

This temple is near Bao'An and rather small. But the staff made it a point to welcome us, did their best to explain to us about Confucianism and had written material ready for us to better understand their belief system. Although not a spectacular temple...More

Very informative, can learn a lot about the Confucius teachings. Beside that, it's really boring and dull.

Enjoyed it more as a tourist attraction. Good to see the drawings and the sculptures. Unless you are involved in history, it becomes just another temple. Good places to eat outside. Reached there almost at sunset

The grounds are quite large and the buildings have a lot of beautiful details, e.g., color, carvings, etc. You get a history lesson in Confucius and learn that his teachings influenced other Asian nations. There's also a video presentation in the main hall. Wander through...More

Interesting to see this temple, devoted not to a god but to a scholar. Lots of exhibits explaining his teachings, and how he brought the concept of public education for all people, not just the elite, to Asia. The grounds are meticulous, too. It's just...More

I really liked the way this temple was presented - each room explained each of the six arts of Confucius with interactive components. Highly recommend! The 4d movie summed up the displays well but was poor quality
