Among the nine courtyards, the first three are leading ones, only with some small lanes, lined with rows of bushy pines, very pleasing. A deep and serene passage, cut by tall and straight pines, not only shows the history of Confucius Temple, but also sets off the deep thought of Confucius. The rest courtyards are with grand architectures, yellow tiles, red walls and green trees adding radiance and beauty to each other, which is just the reflection of both the broadness and profoundness of Confucius' thought as well as great achievement of him.
