Shanghai Confucian Temple 上海文庙

Dédié à Confucius, philosophe et maître à penser chinois, ce temple offre une véritable bouffée d’air frais loin de la démesure de la ville. Aux abords de la statue de Confucius, un grand nombre de cartes votives accrochées aux arbres par un ruban rouge expriment le souhait qu’un bon nombre des visiteurs du temple voudraient voir se réaliser.

 

Dedicated to COnfucius, a Chinese philosopher and intellectual guide, this temple offers a real breath of fresh air far from the excesses of the city. Around the statue of Confucius, many votive cards hanging from the trees with a red ribbon express the wish that many of the visitors of the temple want to see coming true.

 

“Dear Sage Confucius,

May your blessings on my son(name: Qiu aizheng) with your divine power, to help him concentrate on the final exam with his smart mind and do a very good job, may his scores can be listed in top 5 in the class.

Your student

Qiu aizheng
