Lonely Planet review
This tranquil temple northeast of Confucius Mansion is dedicated to Confucius’ beloved disciple Yan Hui, whose death at age 32 caused the understated Confucius ‘excessive grief’. The main structure, Fùshèng Hall (复圣殿; Fùshèng Diàn), has a magnificent ceiling decorated with a dragon head motif. Outside a bìxì carries a stele that posthumously granted Yan the title of Duke of Yanguo (in both Han and Mongol script) in AD 1331.
