I was expecting more when visiting this area but found it being neglected and not maintained. It's not as well-kept as the temple area and everything seemed rundown with not much written description. Surprised that was the home for the great philosopher.

The only nice thing is that Confucius supposedly lived here. Thats probably a lie. Nothing of interest, nothing really to see. Also if you make a wrong turn, expect to pay again they dont want you retracing your steps.

I had a guide so she could explain a number of things. Apparently the descendent of confucius has escaped to china together with the Nationalist Army and taken all the valuable things with him. So we are mainly left with empty rooms here. The garden at the back is interesting as he could not take it away. Women married into the family were not allowed to leave the compound. They can only take water from a convoluted opening in the wall (see picture).

Honestly I shouldn't have written this review, as this trip happened many years ago. However I couldn't remove this rating. So let me still put a short review here.

The Kong Mansion is one of the oldest places, to commemorate Confucius and his legacy. This place has a long, long history. But the architecture wasn't too well maintained, and some of the recent renovations don't look as well as the old original ones.

Also, during each and every major holidays, this place will take in a bit too many tourists.

Bought a 3-attraction pass for the Temple, Mansion & Forrest of Confucius, and did this one first. For a person who was so influential and important, the 3 attractions don’t seem to want you to know a lot about him. There are very few signs in English, and not that many more in Chinese. I think the idea is to coerce you into getting an audio guide, but I’ve been to attractions all over Asia where you don’t need one, and still have an educational, as well as fun, experience, but I didn’t get that here. Nothing looks very authentically old, and you realise that almost all of what you see has been rebuilt after the originals were destroyed or simply wore away over time. Confucius’ tomb is basically a small hut full of stalls. The commercialisation of the sites is ridiculous, with vendors trying to sell you the same trinkets at every corner. The areas were very nice, and it was great to walk about in the beautiful surroundings, but none of the attractions offer you anything special or unforgettable. If you’re really interested in Confucius then you might like it, but if you wanted to learn anything about him you’ll be pretty disappointed.

Housing complex for Confucius decendent to conducting official business and served as residence. A number of emperors also visited to pay respect to the family. Nothing unique here, a let down.

Of the three sights, Kong Mansion is the least exciting. It is quite mundane and if possible should be done first, if you are doing all three or not at all if you aren't fussed. The garden out the back is pleasant on a sunny day. Not unworthy of your time, but relatively modest and ho hum.

From an historical point of view, this was well worth the visit. Right next to the temple it could just be considered part of the same complex. Well preserved and restored I enjoyed spending a couple of hours walking around with our private guide who was very knowledgeable. We went in December - yes a little chilly - but we had no problems with crowds and often had pics with no one in the way. Probably wouldn't have had the same impact without the guide to explain things.

This is the second time I been writing a negative review in Qufu. This area is not Confucius home. It was basically a market. There were women insisting on selling books and will stop at nothing until you get it. It was a huge mob and even inside the mansion was some markets and noise. Totally unacceptable. However, practically the best site in Qufu.
