Confucius Temple

Confucius was the founder of Confucianism in China, a philosopher, moralist, statesman and educationist, but no religionist head. The thoughts and teachings of Confucius have had a great influence on Chinese feudalist society in the political, philosophic and cultural fields. People built thousands of Confucius Temples, called Kong Miao or Wen Miao to commemorate him. Nowadays, nearly 300 of these temples have survived through the ages. Among them the Confucius Temples in Qufu, Shangdong Province and Beijing are very famous.

Confucius temples are quiet and peaceful!
