Wenchang Confucius Temple Travel Guide

Brief Introduction
The Wenchang Confucius Temple is one of the best preserved examples of ancient architecture in Hainan.

The temple was first built during the 11th century, after repeated renovation and expansion since the Ming Dynasty. The temple is also one of the biggest and most impressive examples of ancient architecture in Hainan. The Wenchang Confucius Temple was built to honor Confucius, perhaps the most famous philosopher in Chinese history.

The temple is strictly built according to the uniform structure of Confucius temples throughout China, strictly following Chinese architectural principles of symmetry.

Entering the gate, the first thing you meet is a life-sized statue of Confucius. Further back is a wooden hall, where the calligraphy of famous and powerful emperors from throughout Chinese history are hung. In the middle of the hall, memorial tablets dedicated to Confucius and his twelve best disciples are solemnly placed. In the two side rooms are tributes including painting and calligraphic work by famous artists. Also here are replicas of portraits of 72 Confucian disciples (the originals are on display in the Confucius Temples in Shandong and Beijing).
