The Six Arts of Confucius

(Cont’ from Jining page)

Today, rituals are loosely referred to greetings, movement, and thoughtfulness in a ritual-ridden ancient China. Most international visitors are at a lost when deciding where to sit at a round dinner table and when to toast to the host.

In Shandong, the ritual is more rigid and fascinating than anywhere else in China. To have a decent taste of the six skills, visit the “Confucius Six Arts Institute in Qufu.

The main sights are within the city walls of ancient Qufu, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it will take a full day to explore. There is a choreographed closing ceremony at the gate, every evening. 

Location: 15 Autumn and Spring Road, Nanxin District.  Qufu City, Jining, Shandong (曲阜南新区春秋路15号)。
