This is immediately next to the Confucius Temple and you effectively go from one to the other. It was originally the centre of scholarship in imperial China, but most of that has gone now, and there's just a series of rooms down the eastern side...More

I was there with an English speaking guide called Dream. The trip was booked through China Hilights. It is a informative place how scholarship in the past worked and a different look on Imperial times in China. My guide was very knowledgeable on the subject.

You will learn a lot about Chinese education history, it is very fascinating. We were there with a guide, we truly appreciated explanations and it helped to make this activity even more interesting. Not as crowded as other locations in Beijing.
