Nanjing Fuzimiao has had a national reputation since 1034 in the Ming Dynasty and it was greatly promoted in the Qing Dynasty. In the two dynasties, Fuzimiao was a thriving commercial and entertainment center emersed in rich culture and arts. It is said that in the time of Qing, the streets in this area had a total length of more than 10 Li (equal to five km) with countless shops, restaurants, bars and hotels, lining up two sides of these streets with colorful signs and lights. The streets were frequented everyday by travelers, wealthy merchants, and royal members in casual clothes.

Fuzimiao is located in the south of Nanjing and is associated with many well-known names, such as Nanjing Confucius Temple, Qinhuai River, Jiangnan Gongyuan (where ancient provincial and national examinations were held), Wuyi Xiang (Wuyi Alley), and more. It is surrounded by the famous Qinhuai River. The Confucius Temple is situated in the center of this region, consisting of a cluster of symmetrically arranged buildings and covering an area of over 26,000 square meters.

The municipal government, in 1985, spent millions in renovating the whole area to keep up with the times and to create a center for shopping, dining and entertainment. Since then the region has been booming with business, and as a result, the economy and population have grown in great pace. Now, Fuzimiao has become one of the most well known attractions nationwide for tourists.

Enjoy your stay while you are there. Buy special gifts for yourself and your friends or family. Sit in a bar or restaurant for your dining needs. And don't forget to learn how to bargain with locals before making your purchase!!
