Confucius Temple in Harbin

The Confucius Temple in Harbin is called 文廟 (Temple of literature) instead of 孔廟 (Confucius Temple), I’m not sure why. It’s a large complex, and the architecture is very nice.

In front of the main hall is a commemorative large ceremonial vessel, modeled on an ancient bronze style.

Along one wall is a series of plaques that have the text of the Analects of Confucius with illustrations.

The temple complex is orderly, quiet and peaceful, a nice escape from the chaos and noise of the city.

    Large and imposing – very different from the Confucian temple in Tainan!
