The original Confucian Temple in Nanjing is long, long gone. In it's place is a modern replica, which now sits (sadly) in the heart of the pedestrianized, tourist shopping and eating area. However, the temple should be the top of everyone's list and the best...More

It was cool in the jade art inside but we didn't get a guide so we were just walking around looking nose inscriptions for things with no idea what they were or how old they were or what the significance was.

It was worth paying a visit, overall it was quite interesting to learn more about Confucius and his men, please go and visit, it will make us smarter and we may have some new creations or ideas that may come into our minds

Wasn't really impressed with this place. The river looked nice and we didn't go inside the temple but the whole area was overcrowded and the food was overpriced. The shops inside were the same as any shopping centre with the rest just selling similar souvenirs....More

( I made a mistake of giving one star to this place instead of 4 stars. Somehow I could not reverse the mistake) During the day, this area is full of tourists as there are numerous eateries, shops and souvenir outlets. After dark, it comes...More
