    This temple complex lies just outside the town wall in the northeast corner of the town. It was the sacrificial temple of the Duke of Zhou. The complex covers an area of 75 acres and features some lovely sets of doors found in the wall that surrounds it. The temple is very peaceful and tranquil as it's not well known to tourists.

    Mausoleum of Shao Hao

    This pyramid-shaped tomb is located a few kilometres to the east of Qufu. It is the burial place of Shao Hao, one of the five legendary emperors supposed to have ruled China around 4000 years ago. This tomb was built in the Song Dynasty (960-1279) with stone blocks in a pyramid shape resembling the Egyptian pyramids. It measures 25m in width and is 6m high with a small pavilion on top.

    To get here, take bus No.2 and ask to be dropped off at "Shao Hao". Then cross over the main road and walk northwards to a lake with two enormous bixi with their stone tablets. Then proceed through the gate that enters into the walled compound and keep walking north past some pavilions. The tomb is behind these. It's a good 10 minute or so walk from the main road.
