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

I spent quite a bit of time trying to find this place on a map only to discover that it is also called Temple of Bliss which has a separate entry! We will go later this week and will report back!

We came across this place by accident, and popped inside to get out of the cold. It's well maintained, and the small museum attached has some interesting displays.

I went in january so it inevitably looked different to the photos! But it was still beautiful. Not many people there so it felt very serene. There was also a small building with an exhibition about local fishing and hunting traditions. Free entry, so you might as well visit if you're looking for somewhere to pass twenty minutes
