Welcome everyone, I am glad that you can come to Pingyao County, where there is the oldest Confucius temple. It was opened to the public Monday after a one-year renovation project.
I hope you can appreciate the spot indeed.
First, I will show the main building of the temple, its the most interesting spot here.
Second, we can walk around to see the other area of the spot. Finally, I will tell the history of the temple.
The main building of the temple was built in 1163, in the Yuan Dynasty , and has a history of more than 840 years.
Compared with other famous Confucius temples nationwide, it was built 248 years earlier than that in Beijing, and 317 years earlier than that in Qufu City, Confucius＇s home in east China＇s Shandong Province. The temple in Qufu was added to the list of the World Cultural Heritages in 1995. The Pingyao Confucius Temple has China＇s largest statue collection of Confucius and famous ancient Confucian scholars. Covering a total area of 40,000 square meters, the temple has 112 buildings in 16 categories. that is the history of the temple.
