What To Expect

The Temple of Confucius in Qufu, Shandong Province of China, is the "original", largest and most famous of the temples of Confucius in China and East Asia. Along with the Cemetery of Confucius and the Kong Family Mansion, the temple has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994.
The Cemetery of Confucius, known under its Chinese name Kong Lin and more commonly referred to as the "Confucian Forest", is a cemetery of the Kong clan (the descendants of Confucius) in Confucius' hometown Qufu. Confucius himself and some of his disciples are buried there, as well as thousands of his descendants.
The Kong Family Mansion was the historical residence of the direct descendants of Confucius in the City of Qufu. The extant structures mainly date from the Ming and Qing dynasties. From the mansion, the family tended to the Confucian sites in Qufu and also governed the largest private rural estate in China.
