The Confucius Temple and The Imperial Academy

Academie impériale

In this majestic complex, we will witness the legacy of Confucius, the most important thinker in Chinese history. The Confucius Temple has held a prominent place in Beijing for centuries, as the emperor himself went there twice a year to honour the wise philosopher. Treading in the footsteps of these historical figures, we will then visit the Imperial Academy, an educational institution of the highest order, where the elite of the Empire was prepared for power.
