“If you have time, check it out!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

The mansion is quite nice. Gives you a better understanding of Confucius and his importance in Chinese (Japanese and Korean, too) culture.

“Do visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Beautifully preserved ancient family dwelling. You could easily spend a couple of hours in here. The street outside is worth a look too.

“the living quarters”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

the family and descendants lived here .it has historical value but not much cultural importance.the emperors of china gave highest respect to Confucius.hence this place of living always obtained imperial favour till the last known descendant of Confucius fled to Taiwan.

“Very large compound!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

It's amazing to see how Confucius who was raised in poverty and never attained the government position that he wanted, was able to surround himself with so much. This place is HUGE!
