Photographer's Note

If you have been to Nanjing which is the capital of Jiangsu province, you should go to Confucius Temple there. It is a breeding place for photography and for your spiritual life. As people makes ceremonies there, I was busy by taking photos without disturbing them.

Here is the facts about the temple. If you want to read more on Nanjing in travel diary format, you should visit

Facing a branch of the Qinhuai River (Qínhuái Hé, 秦淮河), Nanjing's eponymous Confucius Temple (Fūzǐ Miào, 夫子庙) sits amid the restaurants, shops and tourists of Fuzi Miao Pedestrian Street. Originally built in 1034 during the Song Dynasty, when China's homegrown philosophy saw a revival, the current structure—largely rebuilt, though some structures date from the Qing Dynasty—still serves as a temple venerating Confucius. Statues of Confucius and his followers line the central courtyard and colored stone friezes tell Confucian tales along the wall of one of the structure's halls.
