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.

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.

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

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

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.

It is in the southeast of Pingyao Ancient Town. It is a shool in the ancient time. My friend's boyfriend is from Pingyao and he lived in the ancient town when he was young student. He said that confucian temple was once the elementary school. In the temple, the ancient writing brush, ink stick, paper and ink slab and some other instruments are displayed. On the wall hang the paintings and characters which tell the story and principles of confucius. Before visiting, you should learn something about confucius and his principles or his lifetime.Then the journey to Pingyao Confucian Temple will be interesting and knowledgeable.

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.

Our guide gave us a very good talk about Confucism and the temple was beautiful and quite extensive.

There are not a lot of Confucian temples in traditional tourist circuits so take the opportunity to visit this one. A nice temps with statues of Conficius and small bridges over water.
