The Confucius Temple (Fuzimiao) is the holy shrine of Confucius, the renowned ancient Chinese philosopher and thinker. The structure was initially built in the year of 1034. It was destroyed and reconstructed numerous times throughout the millennium. It was devastated again during the Japanese invasion in 1937 and was then rebuilt. Local municipality did a renovation in 1984 according to the temple's original outline. The new construction consists of three portions: the temple itself, the Imperial Academy, and the Gongyuan where ancient provincial and national examinations were held.

In front of the Confucius Temple flows the Qinhuai River. Visitors can enjoy great night scenes decorated in countless neon lights by cruising around in a comfortable boat.

Numerous heritage sites are located within the district. You can take a pleasurable walk along the streets where you will find diverse entertainments, shopping centers and dining places. Enjoy your stay while you are there: buy special gifts for yourself and your friends; sit in a bar or restaurant for your dining needs. And don't forget to learn how to bargain with locals before making your purchases!!
