Nearly all the historic cities in Shanghai have their own Confucius Temple. Why? It is not only for sacrificing to Confucius, but an important part of governmental system. Shanghai is included as well. Shanghai Confucius Temple (the official website is used to be an educational site of the regional education organ of Shanghai in Qing Dynasty, and the only site to sacrifice to Confucius in downtown Shanghai. It is located on No. 215, Wenmiao Road, Huangpu District, Downtown Shanghai. This temple has a history over 700 years. Originally built in 1294, and later moved to other areas, and in 1855, it was finally fixed at today’s site. In the era of Republic of China, it was used as the public education house of Shanghai. During the Cultural Revolution, it was seriously destroyed and some valued architecture was dismantled. Up to 1980s, it became a famous old book marketplace. In 1997, after a large restoration, it recovers the original look of Qing Dynasty, and plays a role of sacrificing to Confucius and exhibiting Chinese culture. Nowadays, the valued buildings in temple include the Lingxing Gate, Grand Achievement Gate, Grand Achievement Hall, Chongsheng Memorial Hall, Minglun Hall, Zunjing Pavilion and Kuixing Pavilion. In 2002, it was accepted as the site under the protection of Shanghai municipality. Today, Shanghai Confucius Temple is a hot tourist site in downtown area, and it is also the convenient site to understand the culture and tradition of Confucianism.
