This temple is significantly more simple and less decorated than other temples such as Longshan Temple, Baoan Temple, the Xiahai City God Temple. This is due to the fact this particular temple is based on the philosophy of Confucius which takes a simpler view of life. Not only is the temple dedicated to Confucius and his philosophy, it is also dedicated to several of his disciples/students who made substantial contributions to Confucianism.
The temple is free admission and while it was sparsely crowded when I visited, it was during the early morning. I would suggest trying to visit and getting pictures in the morning before things start to pick up.
