Nanjing Confucius Temple (Fuzimiao)
|Nanjing Confucius Temple Photos|
In front of the Nanjing Confucius Temple, the Qin Huai River is flowing. On the south bank of the river, there is the longest screen wall in China which is 110-meter-long (about 120 yards) and piled with bricks. The Dacheng Hall is recommended on your trip. It is 16.22 meters high (about 53 feet) and 28.1 meters (about 30 yards) wide featuring a 1.5-meter-high (about 5 feet) pedestal. There are two worthwhile attractions found in the inner hall. One is the largest figure of Confucius in China. The other one is the beautiful collection of 38 vivid panels which are made by various jade, gold and silver, detailing the life of Confucius. Out of the hall, you will see the bronze statue of Confucius as well as the white marble statues of his eight disciples.
Not far from the pedestrian street, there is Bailuzhou Park. Unlike the bustling area, it’s quiet and peaceful. If you want to seek quiet, you can go there to feel another version of Nanjing.

I happen to know a store, Lulinsheng Er Hu Store in 30 Toutiao Lane, East Zhongshan Rd, which is about 4km north to the temple. You can take bus 202 to East Zhongshan Rd, Yixianqiao, and then walk southeast for 5 minutes to the store.
