Confucian Temple

Confucian Temple, Jinan

This Confucian temple is just south of Daming Lake. You can enter either in front of Daming Lake or by the front entrance, which you get to by walking north on Food Street. Don’t try this on the weekend when hordes of people jam Food Street, which is really more of an alley! It’s a small temple and doesn’t take long to walk around.

The entrance says there’s a 10 yuan entry fee, but they don’t always collect it.

I’d been to Jinan’s Confucian Temple before but was surprised to find this and another building behind the main hall. You must go through a passage on the right of the main hall.

Mencius’ Temple

P1040290

Mencius was a Chinese philosopher, second only to Confucius. He lived in Zuocheng, Shandong Province and we hopped the slow train to his hometown. It’s a dusty, unpretentious (to be generous) town that few travelers visit. I’m not quite sure it’s worth the train trip. It’s not bad, but there isn’t that much there.
