If you know who is 孔子 and respect him then it is a good place to visit. Spend 30-45 minutes to show some respect to this scholar 2600 years ago is not a bad thing. It is near to 雍王府。

This is the imperial college for the emperors in the past, primarily focus on Confucius teachings. There is a huge Confucius statue, numbers of stone tablets, coniferous trees for few hundreds years, etc. Not many visitors, hence a tranquil environment. We missed the performance show at 11.30am and not going to wait for the next one at 2.40pm. Good to visit together with Yonghe Lama Temple (if you have time) near this place, within 10 minutes walk. The entrance fee is relatively higher than Lama Temple, at RMB30 per person per entry. However, the architecture is not as impressive as Yonghe Lama Temple. If you don’t have time, you may probably skip this and focus on Yonghe Lama Temple.

Close to the Lama Temple, this is a much quieter temple complex with no crowds. Though not as impressive as the Lama Temple, it has dozens of steles which are the stone tablets used to inscribe history - of great interest to history buffs, but otherwise rather boring. Like the Lama Temple, a pretty long walk fro the subway station.

A great deal to see here. The high light for us was the Chu Juan Bai Cypress, or touch evil tree. One item of note is the 700-year-old Chu Jian Bai (Touch Evil Cypress) in the temple. Its name is associated with an ancient legend. During the Ming Dynasty, one day the superior official-Yan Song came to worship the sage on behalf of the emperor. When he was passing by the cypress, one of the branches of the tree took his hat off. Since Yan Song was a treacherous official, people thought the old tree could distinguish between good and evil people. Hence its name.
