one peaceful hour just before closing

I've visited the place an hour or so before closing (4PM) and we got ushered just when we came to a hall with English info. Otherwise not many other texts in English. Nice series... read more

Located among surounding large, modern buildings. Grounds are very peaceful. There's not much written in a English. Buildings look very similar to others in China.

This temple is in the middle of modern Tianjin but once you enter the grounds you are taken back hundreds of years and can enjoy the tranquility of the Temple grounds. Wonderful old buildings and Temple gates. Interesting statue of Confucius. Good washrooms as well.

I've visited the place an hour or so before closing (4PM) and we got ushered just when we came to a hall with English info. Otherwise not many other texts in English. Nice series of peaceful courtyards and halls, a good introduction to chinese historic architecture. Definitely worth a visit.

The Confucian Museum is a pleasant surprise for me. It is located in a shopping district, next to a shopping mall called New World Department Store (where Carrefour is located). It cost RMB 30, which is not cheap for a temple, compared to RMB 5 for Dabei Temple. But it is certainly worth the money for these reasons: 1. You... More

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 spent about an hour here while waiting for my daughter to finish class and got some great photos of the restored and preserved temple. Each building features different Confucian icons related to various needs, wealth, health, etc.. I went early in the morning so I was basically alone. It costs 30 kuai and I believe it's free to residents... More

Interesting place, beautiful buildings and surroundings. There were lots of signs in english about confucianism but unfortunately none about the temple or its history. It would have been nice to know more about which parts were authentic and which were rebuilt. It was however worth a visit!

visited this temple on 28/08/2012. wasnt too impresses. admission fee 30yuan. a little boring. Contain a number of tablets. Has a lot to do with sacrificing sheep, pigs and oxen for conficious ancestry. The live show made the visit a little worthwhile though. Very impressive was the 700 year old cypress trees.

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 sketches of some gate So, a peaceful temple, visit it, and spend some time reading...
