Beautiful temple, very close to the more popular Lama temple. It wasn't too peaceful or quiet when we visited, but it wasn't too crowded either. The entry ticket gives access to the temple and the Imperial college and the two places are next to each...More

After Jinan and Mount Tai seemed logical to Visit Qufu as the Home and Burial Place of Confucius...Easy and reasonable to reach by Bus or Taxi from Train Station and plenty to occupy the mind for a few Hours whilst there.

A total rip off, temple is nothing special, the high review score is probably by local guides. The complex is old, definately, and it really shows. Nothing of beauty, only faded paint and wood rot. Sure they have steles, but if you've seen one you've...More

Went for a couple of hours before catching a train to Shanghai. It was very interesting to understand that the temple as been built over 100s of years - each emperor trying to add his name to a building and link his "brand" to that...More

The Temple is looking considerably better after a lot of renovations and the scaffolding has been taken down. Having said that, there is still a lot more necessary. Always an interesting visit and actually a lot to see and learn. Always enjoy the massive Steles...More
