"Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself", the Golden Rule. This temple complex in Harbin was built in 1926 and completed in 1929. It is a sanctuary for peace and tranquility. It was very nice experience to walk about and admire the architecture both outdoors and indoors - please don't forget to look up.... More

Not worth of visiting if you have been to other temples. There is a history museum inside but explanations are not in English so going through it took something like 20mins. If you still want to visit a temple in Harbin go to Jile temple (Temple of Bliss) which is more interesting with all the statues.

We walked from the beautiful Temple of Bliss over to the Confucian Temple. Even though the hours posted on the ticket booth indicated it should be open, it was not. There was no explanation. There was a small crowd of disappointed tourists there, both from China and international. No one could figure out what was going on, so we left... More

One of the best and the most revered temples in the Northeast, here you can see the statue of Confucius himself at the entrance of the temple, then ponds with koi fish and lili pads are very common too. In the winter time after the pond was frozen, you can see the snow covered pond by the temple, very nice... More

We enjoyed strolling around this somewhat small temple complex outside of the crazed downtown area of Harbin. When we were there, there was a marvelous exhibit of Siberian peoples, with examples of their fish-skin clothes, baby cradles, tools, etc. For the anthropologist, this was an unexpected bonus. We make it a point to visit the Confucius temple in whatever city... More

The temple is not close to other attractions but it is a nice place to get some quiet time. Inside is one room exhibiting the history of Harbin ancestors and how they lived. Really interesting. Too bad it is only one room. I would have liked to see more.

The Confucian Temple (文庙) is only a 10-minute walk from the Temple of Bliss (极乐寺), so you can easily do both back-to-back. The Confucian Temple is located on the street that shares its name: 文庙街 (Wen Miao Jie). Unlike the Temple of Bliss, which charges 10元 for admission, the Confucian Temple is completely free. You MUST have your passport, however.... More
