Confucian Temple

Beijing Confucius Temple is the principal site of Confucian worship during Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties. Situated in Guozijian St., the temple was established in 1302 and reconstructed in 1411. It is the second largest temple built for Confucius, the greatest thinker and educationalist in ancient China, ranking only behind the Confucius Temple in Qufu, Shandong Province.

Confucius Temple still keeps the original Yuan Dynasty architectural style, though it experienced several reconstructions and extensions. The three-row-house courtyard emphasizes Dacheng Gate, Dacheng Palace, Chongsheng Gate and Chongsheng Ancestral Hall in the axle wire. There are a total of 198 pieces of stone tablets on both sides of the front courtyard containing the names of thousands of advanced scholars of the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties.

After the full-scale reparation of 2005, Confucius Temple will display its original Ming and Qing dynasty architecture.
