This is a nice looking temple. It's recommended if you haven't gone to a Confucius temple before. Unfortunately, you can't enter most of the exhibit halls. You can only look over a cloth barrier. There are no lights on inside the halls, so it's very hard to see the displays. Another person mentioned free performances, but there weren't any on the day I went there.

Confuious practiced his way and educated many. He was born in 551 BC and lived until 479 BC. The temple is a holy space dedicated to his life and teachings. Beautiful facilities and gardens.

I recommend getting the 3 day ticket to visit the many historic sites in Pingyao. This temple was expansive, with many beautiful structures and gardens. We walked around for an hour, and it was like a journey back in time, very atmospheric and beautiful

Near the old Confusion school, this shrine is also one of must to see place in the wall. At the gate there is a small stage and play with Chinese music was performed, and at the shrine old men were playing short play with Quing Dynasty Costume. Though language is in Chinese, they were quite interesting.

Shrine is also interesting, but you may feel too much to see similar buildings, rooms, gardens.

One of the main attractions (there are not many) in Pingyao. Quiet place if you want to escape the crowds in Pingyao.

This is an extensive temple complex with a number of different spaces. Statutes of deities and decorative incense sticks make for beautiful photography. You can easily spend over an hour here wandering around. The signage is also available in English, making it easy to understand what you are seeing.

By the time I got to this temple I had seen so many that I hesitated about going inside yet another one, but I’m so glad I did go in. I think it’s probably the nicest one I saw in town. The grounds are beautiful, the buildings are big with the possibility of climbing steps to go upstairs and have a view over the old town and the many clay tile roofs.

This was a lovely peaceful space with lots of atmosphere and our favourite of the old buildings to see in the old city.
