Confucian Temple

Last updated by  at 2014/5/8

The Confucian Temple was built in 1070 A.D. It was built in order to offer sacrifices to Confucius. Thus it is also called the Temple of Confucius. In 1076 A.D., the first academy in Vietnam was set up. Khuê V?n Các (constellation of literature), which was only a building in the Temple of Literature at that time, is now a symbol of Hanoi. Inside Khuê V?n Các (constellation of literature), there are 82 stone steles which were set up on many turtles of various shapes. On the stone steles, there carved the names of candidates of China’s imperial competitive examination in about 300 years after the 15th century A.D. The beautiful rooftops and the squares without walls keep the Temple of Literature from the hustle and bustle on the street, adding much more sense of beauty to the quiet temple.
