Cemetery of Confucius Tours

The Cemetery of Confucius contains the tomb erected in memory of Confucius, along with the remains of more than 100,000 of his descendants. Situated just north of the sage’s birthplace of Qufu in Shandong Province, the cemetery sits around two kilometers from the Confucius Temple and the Kong Family Mansion, which together make up a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The oldest graves at the cemetery date back to the Zhou Dynasty. Confucius’ tomb has gone through a few changes over the years, with the present-day tomb being in the form of a cone-shaped hill.

Practical Info

The Cemetery of Confucius and the other Confucius sites are situated in the city of Qufu in the southwest of Shandong Province. The Cemetery of Confucius is a short taxi ride from the other sites.
