A visit to the 2nd largest Confucius temple in China. Nothing magnificent but quite relaxing in the middle of the city. Old garden charm worth the visit around.

You will understand a part of why Chinese culture could last so long, if you visit this garden school. Almost every little part of design reflects the fact that the spirits encouraging people to study hard, study as you live, study from each other, so...More

If you are in Jianshui, you should go there. It is very relaxing and peaceful and beautiful. There are temples to visit, a small lake in the middle with a temple and just walking around is very nice.

Staying at the stunning guest house at its southern entrance, we got entrance tickets for free. Otherwise, at 60 yuan, this place doesn't seem worth it. No wonder it was so quiet, with few visitors. The upside is you can have a quiet walk around...More

The lake is nice and the temple okay but for ¥60 you could see more interesting things in most other places. Don't believe any local hype, it's no different to other Chinese temples.
