Nanjing Confucius temple was built in Song Dynasty (A.D.1034) and expanded in East Jin Dynasty. This architecture complex was ruined and rebuilt for several times. The Confucius Temple once was rebuilt in Qing Dynasty (A.D.1869) but was seriously destroyed by the Japanese aggressor troops in 1937. In order to protect the old city, the Chinese Government appropriated funds to rebuild and fix the ConfuciusTemple.
