It is a sacred place for people who believe in Confucianism. It has rich history and culture and a tranquil environment. I wouldn't recommend the temple to average tourists, as it is not a "fun" site.

Great morning out at the Confucious Temple. Lots of information plaques and shared areas for when it got too hot. Some small shops but all selling the same things. Drinks and ice cream very reasonably priced.

The temple is similar to countless others throughout China, but the fact that it is dedicated to Confucius makes it special to his millions of followers. It is well maintained and impressive, though to a Westerner it would easily be confused with any other temple of similar style and structure.

You can buy just one ticket (150 RNB) to enter three different places which are the Confucius temple, the Confucius mansion and the Confucius cemetery. The former two are next to one another. The latter is a bit far away. It takes around 15 minutes on foot.
I enjoyed my day in Qufu but only up to a point simply because I have been living in China for almost a decade. Therefore I have seen similar temples many times before. But for someone who is new of China, this place is truly enjoyable. Just a few words for the cemetery. This holy place is really huge. You can find several tombs here and there. After having strolled for half an hour I was sick and tired to see tombs. This is why I left the place. As for the tomb of Confucius, which is of course the main "attraction", it is easy to find it since it is pretty close to the entrance. As soon as you get inside the cemetery, it's more or less 100 meters on your left.

Most buildings were rebuilt due to fire damages, not original. Some trees were very old, over thousands of years. Stone tablets inscribed with emperors' handwritings were unique. The carved columns with dragon motifs are truly a work of art. The color of the thousand year old wall painting depicting the procession of the emperor was still vivid and colorful. These are the major highlights besides being the location to commemorate Confucius. Highly recommend to hire a guide to go through this site to get the most value out of the visit.
