Temple of Confucius is an ancient monument in China . It is located in the eastern part of the country, in Confucius' hometown Qufu, in Shandong Province. It is the most sacred Confucian place. Confucius was one of the greatest world philosophers, and he stood at the foundation of the Chinese Confucian philosophy. Two years after Confucius' death, in 478 BC the king of the state Lu rebuilt Confucius' birthplace into a temple. He exhibited there Confucius' personal belongings and things of everyday use. The current design and size of the temple was created in the early 18th century. Extensive reconstruction works were performed on the command of the Qing emperor Yongzheng. The whole complex is about 1 km long and covers an area of more than 100 000 m2. There are 500 apartments and rooms.
