Noting much inside
Jul 2019 • Family
The nature setting is beautiful with a large lotus pond. Lots of locals use it as a free public park. Not much old things inside. Appreciate local council's efforts of having music performance. Burning incense and turn it to be a worship place may make Confucius laugh in his grave.

A magnificent temple!
Nov 2018 • Couples
The temple is built on a large area around a lake. It's a magnificent architecture. And at the same time the nature is maintained unperturbed. The lone musician at the backyard filled the temple ground with serenity.

Confucianism Temple Similar to Buddhist Temples of China
Apr 2018 • Solo
Confucius as most know was philosopher but his teachings also evoked a spiritual following and religious type beliefs. His writings and philosophies have not only influenced China but also other countries most significantly Vietnam. There is also a religion in Vietnam called Cao Dai, that religion was created in the 1800s and has elements of Buddhism, Confucianism and Catholicism. This is the first and only Confucianism temple I have been to. Impressive grounds and a relaxing meditating place to be in.

Another day, another temple.
Apr 2018 • Couples
That was my first thought when I was told that we were going to visit this Confucius temple, but at the end I was glad I did it. Different from any other temples, more spacious and with an aura of tranquillity, the temple is set in a vast garden with lots of trees and a little lake full of fishes, terrapins and lotus plants. Spend a couples of hours in the peace and tranquillity to recharge your batteries.

A visit to the 2nd largest Confucius temple in China. Nothing magnificent but quite relaxing in the middle of the city. Old garden charm worth the visit around.

全国第二大孔庙,设计有匠心 Well reserved Confucius Temple
Feb 2017 • Family
You will understand a part of why Chinese culture could last so long, if you visit this garden school.
Almost every little part of design reflects the fact that the spirits encouraging people to study hard, study as you live, study from each other, so that can get prosperity
There is still a high school nearby this temple that the students can use garden as a place to read and think.

文化*大革命时期,破坏了很多优秀历史文物,这座孔庙得益于建水一中的师生们,才能够较好的保留下来。七百多年的历史风貌得以留存。
在云南这样的边疆地区,能够有这样规模和设计的文庙,足见自古以来,当地人民也是重视文化教育的,只是地处边远,当地物产丰富,所以位居中央的功名少了很多。
至今人们都信奉孔夫子能够给学子们带来的榜样性与好运。那一池学海,那鲤鱼跃龙门,处处提醒着苦作舟的学子不断前进,不懈努力

Nice place to relax
Apr 2016 • Solo
If you are in Jianshui, you should go there. It is very relaxing and peaceful and beautiful. There are temples to visit, a small lake in the middle with a temple and just walking around is very nice.
