The Confucian Temple is serene and is a great place for some relaxation and photography. It is surprisingly peaceful inside the grounds, given what is happening outside.

I visited it with the Beijing's Temple of Confucius in my mind. Comparing to it is small and not very well maintained. I didn't see to many tourists, actually almost no tourists at all; only a class of students that were trying to draw some...More
