Temple of Mencius and Meng Family Mansion

Entering the Temple of Mencius from the Lingxing Gate, you will see towering archaic trees everywhere in the courtyard. Most of the trees are Cypresses with unique shapes. Some look like dragons going out to sea, some like snakes coming out of holes, and some seem to have magical turtles clinging on the tree trunks. Look carefully and you will find that each tree is its own unique creature. The ancient buildings of the Temple of Mencius are partially concealed by the ancient trees. These towering trees are green all year round, which symbolizes the immortal spirit of Mencian and Confucian culture.

In the third courtyard of the Temple of Mencius, there are many inscription tablets. The ancient locust tree beside the Fenjin Pond records the stream of annual sacrifices. The life story of Mencius, the saint second only to Confucius, is also displayed in his bedroom. After reading it, you will have endless thoughts about the story of Mencius.
