Originally built in 1302 and used as a place for sacrifices to Confucius during the Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties, this former temple lost its religious function during the “bourgeois revolution” in 1912 and currently houses the Capital Museum.

Enjoyed seeing this temple and learning more about Confucius. We got to see a traditional dance ceremony adjacent to the temple that very beautiful. Be sure to check the schedule of these performances (only 10-15 minutes long)

Temple of confucius is a temple that commemorates confucius and his fellows. This is a place where chinese children learn traditional morals. There is a free show too. It is right in front of lama temple.

With a guide, I learned a tremendous amount of knowledge about the culture and history of China. This knowledge made my entire visit more special. Take time and have a guide. Expect many visitors at the sight.
