We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Temple of Confucius in Qufu Shandong
Temple of Confucius in Qufu Shandong

Situated in Nanmennei in Qufu, the temple was used to worship Confucius. It could be traced back to 478 BC, and fifty-three tablets have been erected there by emperors over the centuries. The temple complex is the second largest historical building complex in China with an area of 16,000 square meters and has a total of 460 rooms.

Temple of Confucius in Qufu ShandongThe main part of the temple consists of 9 courtyards on a central axis, which is oriented in the north-south direction and is 1.3km in length. The first gate is named “Lingxing Gate” meaning that Confucius is a star from heaven. The building is the remaining courtyards forming the heart of the complex. With yellow roof-tiles and red-painted walls, they are surrounded by dark-green pine trees to create a color contrast with complementary colors. The Hall of Great Achievements is usually considered to be the temple’s most impressive building. The Hall’s features include 28 stone pillars carved with dragons. Each pillar has nine dragons. The pillars are about 500 years old. The hall of Great Achievement served as the principal place for offering sacrifices to the memory of Confucius. In the center of the courtyard in front of hall stands the “Apricot Platform”, which commemorates Confucius teaching his students under an apricot tree. Each year at Qufu and at many other Confucian temples a ceremony is held on September 20 to commemorate Confucian’s birthday.
