Recently, the restoration project of Chuzhou Confucian Temple has entered the stage of conceptual comparison of designs, which means that the restoration project of Chuzhou Confucian Temple has started substantive work.
Chuzhou Confucian Temple was first built in the Tang Dynasty and located in the Park of Meishan Back. It has a history of more than 1200 years. Chuzhou Confucian Temple, known for its famous works from such as Han Yu and Du Mu, has its special significance and cultural value. Fifty to 70s of last century, the buildings of Confucian Temple were demolished and now there is only the ruins.
In recent years, the restoration of Chuzhou Confucian Temple has become a hot topic in all over the society. In July this year, the Confucian Temple reconstruction project was officially put on the agenda of the municipal government. The Municipal Culture, Advertising and Publishing Bureau (The Cultural Relic Protection Office) started the preliminary work of the project quickly. It consulted a large number of documents and historical materials, conducted on-the-spot investigations several times, listened to the opinions of the staffs of cultural relics protection and urban construction, as well as local cultural personnel, and analyzed the plan and design together with relevant departments. In August, the municipal government held a project coordination committee to further clarify responsibilities, tasks and timing requirements for the construction. At present, the project has entered the stage of conceptual comparison of designs, and strives to submit the design to the municipal government for decision-making by the end of October.
Reconstructing the Chuzhou Confucian Temples and resuming the activities of worshiping Confucius and providing lecturing are of positive significance to the construction of contemporary civilization framework, the promotion of urban cultural taste, the promotion of excellent traditional culture and the promotion of the construction of historic and cultural city.
