Petit Futé's opinion on CONFUCIUS TEMPLE
This temple was originally at the door east of the Chinese city, but was destroyed during the attack launched by the Imperial Army against the secret society of the Small Knives in 1856. It was rebuilt at its present location and renovated in 1983. The temple of Confucius, both a place of worship and a teaching center, is a harmonious set of black wooden buildings and white walls, sober and elegant. A basin overflowing with a beautiful three-story pagoda offers a relaxation area on the right of the entrance. Pavilions harbor a rather strange exhibition: sculpted roots and "grotesque stones" include the program, accompanied by a few ceramics and porcelain. Above all, we visit this temple for its calm and calm atmosphere, far from the tourist groups and the shopping madness of the Bazar. In front of the temple, around the statue of Confucius, trees are covered with votive cards and red ribbons. We can read the prayers of the pilgrims: " Master Confucius, I hope you will allow me to integrate a good college ", asks a young anxious Chinese before year-end reviews. We also find, in the middle of Chinese texts, the message of Alice, in French in the text, which thanks God for a whole bunch of things, and concludes «and I would like to spend a good night»…
