From an historical point of view, this was well worth the visit. Right next to the temple it could just be considered part of the same complex. Well preserved and restored I enjoyed spending a couple of hours walking around with our private guide who was very knowledgeable. We went in December - yes a little chilly - but we had no problems with crowds and often had pics with no one in the way. Probably wouldn't have had the same impact without the guide to explain things.

This is the second time I been writing a negative review in Qufu. This area is not Confucius home. It was basically a market. There were women insisting on selling books and will stop at nothing until you get it. It was a huge mob and even inside the mansion was some markets and noise. Totally unacceptable. However, practically the best site in Qufu.

The second part of the Qufu Kong triad of sites is the most disappointing. There are many pavilions and pagodas, but only a couple of them are actually open. Four in fact. And you can only go to the doors and peer inside, along with the 00's of other visitors all straining and craning to get a look. A huge part of the complex is boarded off and under going renovation as of September 2016, but many of the pavilions that are not being restored are closed and locked anyway. If you peer through the filthy glass, you may just see some of the sights inside and in some cases, the padlocked doors are open just a crack. But all in all, there's not much to see other than courtyards and padlocked doors. I can't believe this is how it's meant to be otherwise everyone who's ever been here would feel cheated.

It is really worth seeing this mansion as well as the temple and if possible getting a guide to help you navigate but more importantly to appreciate the whole story of Confucius and his rise to fame an importance in Chinese culture.

The mansion gives a fascinating insight in to life and government at the time and has many architectural wonders.
