Function or value in the past
Imperial Academy is the highest educational institution in the ancient education system.
Ancient Chinese Scholar Tree:
In Guozijian Street and Guozijiannei, there are all ancient Chinese Scholar Trees. In ancient Chinese feudal society, Chinese Scholar Tree was the tree of doctors. They were planted in Guozijian, which represented the students there could reach the government offices through the exams. So the Wenchang Scholar Tree is closely related with the fortune of the candidates. More than 700 years from Yuan Dynasty, Chinese Scholar Tree is the host tree in Beijing.
When people talked about the old sceneries in Beijing, they always talked about the Chinese Scholar Tree, Chinese Wisteria and Siheyuan Courtyard.
The best season to travel in Imperial Academy is from October to the next April.
Views from Travelers:
Compared with Yonghegong Lama Temple, Guozijian and Confucian Temple is more quiet. It is a perfect place for photography.
Guozijian sits with Confucian Temple together. The cultural atmosphere is thick. More parents took their children there. I got a lot from the tour guide.
You can go and feel the atmosphere of culture. You can see the place where the emperor gave lectures to his students and the bridge which was only for those No.1 Scholars in the ancient times. You can pay a visit to Confucius and his students. The ancient educational system and test system can also be compared with those from nowadays.
