Introduction to Nanjing Confucius Temple (夫子庙)

Confucius Temple in Nanjing was once an imperial cultural and educational centre for the entire Jiangsu Province. It comprises a fraction of the once original buildings. The rest of the site is a characteristic market, a top tourist attraction and a place where you can get all culturally and historically attractive items.

The Confucius Temple in Nanjing was originally constructed in the year of 1034 in the Song Dynasty. It was a place to worship and consecrate Confucius, the great philosopher and educator of ancient China. It is also known as Fuzimiao in Chinese. This temple suffered repeated damage and has been rebuilt on several occasions since that time. 1937 was the most destruction when it was burnt to ruin by Japanese aggressors.

In 1984 the temple was rebuilt under the support of the local government. During the long process, the original building expanded to be a complex building in the architectural style of the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties, including the Confucius Temple itself, the Jiangnan Gongyuan (the place of imperial examinations) and the Xue Gong (the Imperial Academy).
