world has ever known. While its gorgeous exterior and intriguing architecture are immediately obvious from the first sight; it is the strange myths and mysterious tales that draw you deeper into the hand-painted chambers and finely crafted corridors. When it is time for the doors to close in the grand capital of Beijing, a walk through the immaculate courtyards, beneath ancient trees of yesteryear, guarantees grand memories to share with the family back home.

A beautiful Temple but I would suggest doing Yonghegong Lama Temple as well as the Confucius temple in the same day. It's beautiful but not as beautiful as the Lama temple.

The arts and design of Confucius Temple is beautiful ad made by hand-crafts. Locals or tourists came here to pray sincerely for health, safety, wealth and peace.

Another temple in Beijing and the most important confucius temple in the whole area, altough smaller than the Lama temple, it's located close to, the confucius temple is a nice sight to visit. The market around it sells lots of religous items and incense sticks, so if you want to buy stuff like that, heres the place to be in Beijing.

Love the Confucius Temple! The grounds, arranged around a courtyard, are small and charming. Ancient trees and ancient stele provide an atmosphere that's calm and wonderful. Just west of the Lama Temple, but often overlooked. Highly recommended.

Ein kurzer Spaziergang vom Lama-Tempel in einer schönen Seitengasse gelegen, die von Ziergittern überspannt ist, befindet sich der 1302 erbaute Tempel des Konfuzius, der dem großen Philosophen und Lehrer geweiht war, dessen Lehren das öffentliche und private Leben über Jahrhunderte prägten. Der Tempel, einer der bekanntesten Konfuziustempel Chinas, war einst Schauplatz zahlreicher Zeremonien zu Ehren seines Namensgebers unter der Führung des Kaisers. Der Vorhof beherbergt 198 Stelen mit Inschriften, in denen alle 51.624 konfuzianischen Gelehrten genannt werden, die nach 1416 die höchsten staatlichen Prüfungen bestanden haben, bis sie 1904 abgeschafft wurden.
