  • Beautiful, grand temple in the centre. Once you have visited, take a look at the surrounding shops - not to be missed.  more »
  • The Confucius Temple in Nanjing is well known and this crowded with tourists but a must see, located in the ancient area of Nanking "Fuzimiao" easily accessible by metro and bus.

  • It is one of the most important temples of the city located in Fuzimiao in Nanjing. The temple is dedicated to Confucius and worth the visit. Fraction (I think 10 or 20 yuan). Recommend the visit in the evening.

Where to stay in Nanjing

You won't find a shortage of accommodations in Nanjing, a modern metropolis long on the radars of domestic and international tourists. Look south of the main railway station, following Central Road, to find the primary districts where visitors stay, with clusters of high-rise hotels--some luxurious and others standard, but all comfortable. A number of smaller boutiques set in formerly residential buildings provide atmospheric, well-maintained, and budget-friendly options. Take a look at the side streets around Central Road for a wealth of hostels and guesthouses.
