The temple is actually an academy and was founded in honour of Confucius in the 11th century. Students of Confucius taught the elite of Asia here. It was the most prestigious educational institution in Indochina. Unfortunately, it was substantially destroyed in 1940. The temple consists of 5 large courtyards, one behind the other, each with an entrance gate. In the third courtyard to the right and left of the pond are turtle stelae (the turtle is the symbol of wisdom). All the students who graduated here are engraved on the steles. In the last courtyard is the Khai Than Temple, where Confucius and his disciples are worshipped.
