While this is not a huge temple, size-wise, it has a lot of spiritual significance for the Chinese. A wonderful place to come if you are student of Confucian philosophy. There is a popular book fair in the front courtyard each week. There are large...More

Provides a nice insight to the thinking and important part of getting at historic Chinese culture and its continues relevance today. The temple is a quiet and relatively uncrowded place, peaceful. It could do with more information on its historical relevance and today's context. Pleasant...More

The temple was lively and definitely worth a stop. The library was really interesting. The highlight was the tea sampling you can do near the entrance. It’s 30rmb at the time of writing and definitely worth it.

After changing metro and finally reach Huangpu District, we tread along the alley looking for a quick lunch on the way to the Confusious Temple. The building architectual is ancient and we are glad to make our prayer on such a peaceful afternoon.

Absolutely a gem in the middle of the city; peaceful with a tranquil beautiful garden and birdsong. I love the architecture.

We spent quite a few hours roaming around this quite large Temple. I am not certain if this is the Temple that housed the Jewelled Buddha, but if so, I can't praise it highly enough.

We visited the temple during a tour of Shanghai. It was interesting to see how it compared to temples of other religions we saw on our Asian trip. This is a modest temple, but different because of its devotion to Confucius. We especially enjoyed the...More
