Confucius Temple (Wen Miao)Built in 1855 on the site of an earlier temple, and restored in 1999 to celebrate the 2,550th birthday of Confucius, this temple honoring China's great sage offers quiet refuge from the crowded streets of the old Chinese city.Within the compound, there's a large statue of Confucius outside the Dacheng Hall. You can view bizarre-shaped stones and wood (tree roots) in several of the other halls but don't miss the Kuixing Pavilion in the western part of the compound. The stark gardens are well-maintained and relatively un-touristed offering a lovely respite.
