The temple was included in the city combon ticket. We walked in the south entrance and out the north entrance. The area was very interesting. Exhibits showing writing and other items used for day to day life. The main building is very old.

Visiting the Pingyao Confucian Temple gives you a great insight into the history of China. If you are from overseas don't forget to take your passport

It worth to have a look as you pass by, but there are more interesting temples in China. There is nothing particular to see in this temple.

A quiet temple with few people vs. the crowded streets outside its perimeter. We enjoyed delving deeper into the beliefs of confucianism.

If you visit the wall of the city and low through the door this arrived directly at the main entrance of the Temple of Confucius, beautiful spaces where reside several fairly new buildings with new images also, and shops of souvenirs and sweets.
