效恺 叶.
The ancient juniper tree, which in legend was planted by Confucius is located next to the Dacheng Men (The Great Perfection Gate) to the east of the marble steps in the Temple of Confucius. The stone stele beside the juniper tree was inscribed by the literati Guangxun Yang in the Ming dynasty and symbolised the regeneration of Confucianism. #confucius #juniper #qufu #孔子 #孔庙 #曲阜 #桧树
