The Confucian Fūzǐ Temple, in the south of the city in a smartened up pedestrian zone full of restaurants, was a centre of Confucian study for more than 1500 years. But what you see here today are newly restored, late-Qing-dynasty structures or wholly new buildings reconstructed in traditional style. The area surrounding Fūzǐ Temple has become Nánjīng’s main shopping quarter and is particularly crowded, but is attractively lit up at night.

Tour boats (游船; yóuchuán ) leave from the dock across from the temple itself for 30-minute day (¥60) and evening (¥80) trips along the Qínhuái River (秦淮河; Qínhuái Hé) between 9am and 10pm.
