Harbin Confucius Temple

Harbin Confucius Temple is located in No. 25 (right beside the campus of the Harbin Engineering University), Wenmiao Street, Nangang Disrict. The temple was set up to worship the great ancient Chinese statesman, thinker and educator, as well as the founder of the Confucian school of thought, Confucius in 1926.

The Confucius Temple originally covered an area of 60,000 square meters. Due to the several turmoils in 1970's, it occupies a space of 23,000 square meters with a floor space of 5,674 square meters remains under its control today. Its architectural scale only ranks after that of Qufu Confucius Temple and Beijing Confucius Temple.

Harbin Confucius Temple is a perfect combination of ancient Chinese garden and architecture. It has 3 beautiful courtyards with many old trees and rare flowers. Its buildings are characterized with very strong Qing Dynasty's architectural style. The main buildings are all located on the axis and other buildings on its sides. They are also symmetrical. The main buildings are covered with glazed yellow tiles which were exclusively used by the royal buildings. As Confucius was worshiped by all emperors, the Confucius Temple was given the privilege of using this color. Building on the sides use green tiles. Small as it is, the temple looks spectacular as the Fobbiden City in Beijing, and is nicknamed "the Fobbiden City of Harbin".
