Confucius Temple of Jiading, Shanghai

POST #    1636

In Jiading is home to one of the few Confucius Temples in the world. Built about 785 years ago (!!), it has 72 lions outside, each representing Confucius's 72 best students. Because of the development nearby, modern Jiading is just outside the walls of the complex now.

Oh, and "Confucius says 'play cards,'" as that's what those kids are doing in the first photo.
